Our social community-led beach group for all mer-folk.

Mermasc meetups are all about connecting with wai, taiao and our beach-loving LGBTQ+ community. Mermasc trips encourage spending time in the water, making friends, and feeling great, rather than swimming laps. There's nothing like challenging queer-phobic and patriarchal expectations, in numbers! This volunteer-led group is open to all people, with a focus on queer people and all communities typically excluded from mainstream fitness spaces.
