A gathering place for Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Trans Neo-Victorians and Steampunks to socially interact. This day and age those of us who feel the love that once “Dare Not Speak Its Name” don’t have to be as afraid as our 19th Century predecessors.
"Yeah,............ Most things are a nightmare with dial-up. Sadly, my circumstances don't allow for much more at the moment. I'll see though if I can attach some photos of those goggles though real soon. I just gotta load them from my…"
"I am not sure what is essential steampunk gear because googles. I have to figure a way to have a local glass shop grind the lenses.
Right now, I my taste in steampunk would include working ren fest details into the projects.
"Ah, I could do that but I don't see them often, and they don't exactly concentrate on Steam Punk stuff. The one I'm thinking of does RenFaire and is a blacksmith. The other problem I have is that my internet connection is…"
"I'm not in the immediate area, that's for sure. New York State particularly a good part of Upstate is pretty far away from CT. However, I'm actually thinking of going into production, of among other steam punk type things,…"
"That fact is a little relief, since finding someone who will not charge an arm and an leg for custom googles would have been a miracle and a half. Do you know anyone in the area that knows metal work?"
"Although goggles are certainly NOT a steampunk requirement...no matter what anyone tells you. ;)
BTW, Hi! :) I'm nowhere near CT but I've met quite a number of steampunks online that are from CT so I hope you find them."

"I might have a problem with goggles will be a problem with me since I wear prescription glasses (far distances are a problem for me). I currently trying to figure out a style and patterns.

"Wish I was in that area, seems to have more Steam Punk activity than my area (upstate NY). Just curious, and if you don't mind me asking, what you working on? I got a few Steam Punk oriented projects I'm workin' on myself. …"
*bows with a flourish* I hear tell that you are looking for a Ship in the SW Connecticut area. Specifically New Haven.
I hear rumors ... whispers. Hither and thither and yon ... of a certain .. shall we say, dashing gentleman who 'Captains a Riverboat Casino-slash-Speakeasy that travels through Time and Space?
What was it called again? *mutters* Bloody Airships ... always with the pomp and circumstance of course ...
Ah yes! The Dandy in question is known as "A Count Named Slick-Brass"... he fancies himself the Captain . . . *snort* of ... Ah what the-.
The Ship is known as 'The A.S.S. Titilus'.
Nevermind. If you have any sense, you wouldn't be interested in that lot. Bunch of knaves, cutpurses and lewd drunken fools, most 'likely. Though they SWEARS they ain't pirates. Seem to take great offense to it.
Look like pirates to me ... *the man trundles off*
