What is Gray Alliance?

Gray Alliance is a non-profit group of seniors ranging from 50 & up. You do not have to be exactly 50 or 100 years of age to join us. Membership is currently over 50 members and constantly growing.


Why Gray Alliance?

A casual informal way of Senior gays & lesbians to meet & share conversation, ideas, & lots more. No one is ever obligated to attend all functions. They are encouraged to attend at their convenience, as their own schedules will allow. We attend functions to have fun, make and be with friends and family!

What does Gray Alliance do?

Gray Alliance people have a monthly dinner out in the local Fresno area. We also meeet monthly on last Sundays at 2pm at First Congregational Church of Fresno, 2131 N Van Ness Blvd, in the Fireside Room for "Games and Snacks". Gray Alliance also puts out a monthly newsletter listing the locations of the dinners, member birthdays, photos of the previous month’s events as well as other interesting tidbits of information.

See Calendar below or read NewsLink for upcoming activities, or contact the Facilitator.



How much is the membership fee?

“ZERO” There is NO membership fee to join Gray Alliance. We may ask for a Bi-monthly donation to provide for our Gray Alliance mailing list. This includes postage, paper, envelopes, labels, etc. for our members that do not have a computer.

How do I contact Gray Alliance to join?

If you are interested in meeting other adult gay men & lesbians throughout the Central Valley, then all you need to do is call one of the phone numbers above.

Please Note:

Gray Alliance does not judge anyone by their level of education or income, political views, religion, single, coupled or looks. Gray Alliance maintains a respect of each other’s different views and ideas, and way of living in harmony with our society. All we expect in return are smiling faces & some pleasant hospitality from one another. Who said “being Gray & Gay is Dull?”, Believe me, within every Gray Alliance member are silver linings that are admired. We have discovered that there is a lot to learn, and very interesting conversations from one another due to life's maturity & adventures that may come with age.
