Welcome to Queer Scouts Boston!
Queer Scouts Boston is a group of queer/trans adults who get together at monthly participant-led skill-shares and other adventures in the greater Boston area. Skill-share topics run the gamut from baking to bike maintenance and everything in between, including traditional scouting skills. We also organize other events, like hang-outs, camping trips, and volunteering. Queer Scouts is a sober space and, through our tenant of radical inclusion, all of our events are free or sliding-scale / pay what you can.
Queer Scouts Mission Statement: Queer Scouts is committed to fostering inclusive, diverse, and fun monthly get-togethers for adults by challenging societal norms, empowering authentic self-expression, and building a thriving community through skill-shares, outdoor activities, dialogue, shared meals, and cooperative play. As queer/trans folks who missed out on Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts as kids, this is an opportunity to gain skills, move our bodies, volunteer for our communities, and enjoy the outdoors. Queer Scouts is a sober space and, through our tenant of radical inclusion, all of our events are free or sliding-scale / pay what you can.

Please note that during the pandemic our skill shares will be done remotely or at outdoor locations where social distancing can be done safely. I was going to wait until the pandemic was over but I think we need community and connections to combat isolation and to help each other more than ever right now.
