LA: Out Pro Lounge: Meaningful Networking for LGBTQ Professionals

Tuesday, September 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Network in person with Out Professionals!

Make meaningful connections with LGBTQ professionals at our famously friendly monthly networking mixer designed to help you meet others.

We’re returning to Rocco’s Paradise, with its open-air outdoor street garden that is exclusively ours for our event. To maximize safety and the freedom to mingle, this event is open to individuals vaccinated for COVID-19 and is being held outside.

You’ll arrive at our famously friendly monthly networking mixer with an opportunity to meet and make professional connections:

  • Color-coded industry badges will help you identify and connect with people in your industry or make it easier to identify others who might facilitate a project or fill a business need for you.
  • Be sure to pocket a handful of business cards to exchange for later follow-up.
  • You can also power up your LinkedIn app (Apple/Android) to seamlessly connect with others on the spot with the Nearby feature. Here’s how.

Drink specials are 2-4-1 for the entire evening of our private event.

Advance registration closes at 3pm on the day of the event. Walk-ins are welcome ($10 donation), but registering in advance speeds your admission and helps us plan.

Event Safety Update

  • Los Angeles County has returned to requiring masks indoors for an indeterminate period.
  • Our event is outside in Rocco’s Paradise, an open-air garden.
  • If you venture inside the main bar to order drinks or converse, you must wear a mask.
  • You can network better when fully seen. Out Pro is selling reusable clear masks in advance as a ticket add-on for $5 each. A limited supply of masks will be available for purchase at the door at the regular price ($7).
  • We hope you will join us for an evening of meaningful networking outside!

Participation Agreement

To attend this in-person event, every registrant must adhere or agree to the following:

  1. Please bring and show proof of vaccination at the door. Acceptable proof includes either a digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record or a completed COVID-19 vaccination card with the second dose received before August 9, 2021. Your vaccination card or record must match your CA ID.
  2. Abide by the current safety protocols of the CDC and CA/West Hollywood in place at the time of the event. As an outside venue, this is a mask-optional event unless CA or city regulations change. If you venture inside to buy a drink, you must wear a mask.
  3. Be kind to your fellow professionals. Regardless of any requirement, some may choose to wear a mask. Please welcome and treat them equally.

To speed admission and help us plan, advance registration is highly recommended.

We are thrilled to be back to monthly, in-person networking events after the long period of social distancing. We hope to see you soon!
