G3 events are all about providing quality social experiences for gay men, our friends, and our brothers and sisters in the LGBT+ community. Whether it is one of our monthly happy hours, a brunch, a fundraiser, pool party or special event, all G3 events strive to be a welcoming, fun, and memorable good times.
WHAT | G3 Gay Happy HourG3's signature event is our monthly happy hour, It's a perfect way to finish up the work week, get together with friends and meet new people. If you are new to town, or visiting, a G3 event is a great introduction to Tucson's gay community. For the first 10 years of G3 we went to a different Tucson venue but in 2023 we established a home base at PLAYGROUND, downtown Tucson's premiere nightclub. Hang Out With Us every 3rd Friday from 5-10PM. Playground is located at the corder of Congress and 5th.
WHERE | G3 VenuesTucson used to have a dozen gay bars, but times have changed. LGBT people are no longer "only" welcome at establishments that specifically cater to the community, so we seek out a variety of gay-friendly venues. This doesn't take anything away but rather offers new options. It also has the added benefit of not only keeping our events interesting, but allow us to build relationships with mainstream hospitality and cultural venues, broadening our community's involvement and visibility. For our first 10 years we went to a different venue every month but in 2023 established a home base at PLAYGROUND, downtown Tucson's premiere nightclub. See Where We've Been

G3 welcomes regardless of gender, identity and/or orientation (including our hetero friends and allies). G3 events are open to everyone 21+ to stay within minimum age liquor laws).
