So, you're new to a city... You know no-one... The job you moved for has since disappeared, and you've got to start from scratch...
Where do you go to meet people? How do you make new friends?
Well, how about... Facebook? (You thought i was going to say your local gay bar, didn't you?)
For this week's guest, Maurice Smith from Category Is... Podcast, it was Facebook where he first made connections after he moved to Philadelphia in the late 00s.
But, when it was time to meet them in real life? That's where Bump came in to play.
We chat all about renaming the gaybourhood, learning to overcome shyness, and, I learn a new word - meetcute! Wanna know what it means? Well, you'll have to listen to the episode to find out....
Do you have any memories of Bump?, or clubbing from your own queer scene that you want to share?
