Wine and Hors-d'oeuvres Meetup

By Diversity Wine Club. For LGBT + Allies.

LGBTA Host's Home

From the hosts: Maybe if you drink plenty of good wine you can stay happily partnered for 25 years.  Join Paul Skierczynski and Eric Baiz at their home as they celebrate being a couple for a quarter century.  Then, ten years ago, on June 18, 2008, the 3rd-day gay marriage was legal in California, they got married in San Francisco. There is likely no other gay couple in Indian with an older dated, legal US marriage certificate.   

Eric's brother has a vineyard next door to their home on Long Island where the favorite varietals are Merlot, Cab Franc, oak and steel barrel Chardonnay. 

Eric & Paul have been leaders in the gay community in Indiana in their continuous leadership positions of Fellowship Indy, the largest and oldest gay social organization in Indiana.  Eric has been a real estate broker with F.C. Tucker for almost 26 years and Paul is one of the Indianapolis Monthly's "Top Docs" specializing in Endocrinology. When not drinking wine, their favorite things are traveling, gardening and swimming. It will be fun.

See you there!

  • We are intentionally welcoming and wildly inclusive.

  • Please bring your Significant Other and friends - even last minute guests are welcome.

  • The meetup is upscale but the dress is casual.
