The Billys is a community of hundreds of open-hearted gay, bi and queer men who join together in Gatherings six times a year in extraordinary rural venues throughout Northern California. Each gathering is a work of art, carefully crafted by Billys to take us to places of joy and playfulness, intimacy and openness. We come together to play games, hike, make yummy food, play music, cuddle, meditate, frolic, do yoga, and learn from each other.

Billys 2020 Vision: A Gift From The Heart

Our goal was to raise $20,000 by December 31. Your tax-deductible donation will fund our mission to provide heart-centered connection, community and an antidote for social isolation for gay, bi and queer men. Our gatherings provide a safe, supportive environment free from alcohol and drugs, opportunities for making new friends, and radical acceptance in a warm and playful setting.
