Connect With Our Community

The Billy Community does not end at gatherings. We also have other ways to connect with each other!

We hold monthly potluck activities in the Bay Area – San Francisco/East Bay/Sonoma county, and Sacramento. To get on our Bay Area potluck list, sign up to receive Billy emails. For Sacramento, email the Billy Office directly.

FUNdraising Events

A few times a year we have fun raising money to pay for scholarships and the General Fund. Join us at SF Pride, a Garden Party, Auction, Cabaret, and other events. Volunteers are welcome too. Contact the Billy Office for information.
