    I'm trying to get a handle of the gay community/ scene in Chicago after moving back a few months ago from NYC and what the best ways to go about meeting like minded guys might be.

    It doesn't seem like the scene is only in Boystown since there's a lot of non-scene guys here who just go about their day and hang out... well I'm not sure exactly since non scene guys blend in with everyone else but browsing through online dating sites is showing there's gay/ bi guys all over the Chicagoland area. Offline though I'm left wondering "where are these guys?" Though they can be fun to go to with friends are there any other spots to hang out at besides the usual Halstead nightclubs and bars? I did notice a lot of guys were headed to and from the gym when I was up in Lakeview so that could be a good spot....

    It's winter so people are staying indoors a bit more compared to summer but I'm searching for social sports clubs, volunteering or organizations or even spots around the city.

    Chances are the gay scene in Chicago and its suburbs is not as flamboyant and loud as it is in cities like New York, Washington DC, San Francisco, etc. It most likely is a more subdued, conservative gay scene which is quite common in the Midwest and the Great Lakes Region.
