“Turning places gay. For one night only.”

That’s the motto of the Welcoming Committee [TWC], a mobile application for the IOS phone that allows groups of LGBT people to unofficially take over a space at any bar or event.

“[It’s] critical mass to any space that brings a unique comfort for gay people that exists in straight places,” TWC Founder Daniel Heller tells dot429. “There’s not a central listing [for gay people] on any given night. It creates an event and if there are more than 15 people, it’s usually positive.”
