This social group is for LGBT youth and allies ages 14 to 23. It is a place to come and hang out with other like-minded young people. Discussion topics range from advocacy in schools to video games. Come organize social events for LGBT youth such as game nights, dancing, strategic planning, or just to hang out… whatever you like! This is YOUR group. Feel free to bring snacks or drinks to share.
Meets every Monday from 6:00pm-7:30pm.
We are a group of families who gather together for support, education, and community to help raise our transgender, gender variant, gender non-conforming or gender questioning children (4-18 years old) in a supportive and loving manner. We recognize that every child and every family has their own journey and has different levels of acceptance and beliefs.
Meets on the 2nd Sunday of every month from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
