Bay Area Nerd Girls (BANG) is a meetup for GEEKY, DORKY, & NERDY girls to meet like-minded ladyfriends.

What is this BANG thing?

Bay Area Nerd Girls (BANG) is an interest-based meetup. Members could be interested in any of the following: Sci-Fi, Anime/Manga, Comics, Cartoons, Academics, Design, RPG, Boardgames, Gaming, Cosplay, and the list goes on. Whether you consider yourself a geek, nerd, or dork, it doesn’t matter — every girl is welcome so long as she’s open to meeting all types of friends. We’re a friendly and open group who loves to gather for adventures like movies, museums, tea parties, cosplay festivals, kite-flying, trampoline park, you name it.

BANG is only open to those who identify as a woman. We are emphatically trans- and queer-friendly. If this sounds like you, we’d love to meet you. Must be 18+.
