Number of Members: Approximately 30

How to Join: Just show up to a meeting and fill out an application or visit the web site to print one out. There is a $10 annual membership fee, which includes an electronic newsletter.

Background: “Sometimes it is harder to come out as a sci-fi fan than it is to come out,” says Michael Cornett, one of the group’s officers. That’s why he was quite surprised when he first came across Lambda Sci-Fi. From watching movies to hosting conventions, Cornett says it’s been a great way to meet friends — “The group has become like family to me.”
