Convergence 37

August 28 – September 2, 2019




This is the Largest Annual Event for big men & male admirers!

Look out San Diego, we are coming back to take over your city. Convergence 37, will be coming to Mission Valley just down the street from the iconic Hillcrest district. Those that have been attending Convergence know that one of the most talked about Convergences was the one in San Diego back in 1996. It has only taken us 23 years to get back to San Diego.

We heard you! So we are bringing back that Big Mans Beach Party that so many have raved about. It is time to take us out of the hotel pools and put us on one of the beautiful sandy beaches of San Diego. How about a jaunt around the bay on a harbor cruise, going to Sea World or the world famous San Diego Zoo? Our host hotel is providing all our guests with free trolley passes that picks you up right outside the hotel. We have an amazing hotel rate at the Marriott Mission Valley for our guests over Labor Day weekend for only $159 a night.

We will have all the things you expect with a Convergence, our famous Hospitality Suite (open bar) without the long lines at other events, Welcome party, Seminars, Entertainment, plenty of pool time, the original Chub and Chaser contest, the dance party and immersion into the gay culture of the city all just for attending Convergence 37.
