Wake Up With FFBC!!

Welcome to the First Friday Breakfast Club!

FFBC is an educational group for gay, bisexual and transgender men. We gather monthly in Des Moines for breakfast, fellowship and a speaker. We provide a safe and supportive environment for all members and guests.

As Iowa’s largest breakfast club, we are active, dynamic and engaging. We educate ourselves on LGBT issues. We work to reduce prejudice and discrimination. Through our annual Red Party, we raise scholarship funds for students who fight homophobia. We offer guidance to those who need help in the coming out process. And we provide opinion leaders and the community with positive images of LGBT people.

We invite you to join us for breakfast—and more.
