GenderQueer Peer Support Group

The DIversity Center (map)

The support and discussion group is for people (of any age) who identify on the spectrum of GenderQueer/Non-Binary/Agender/GenderFluid/PolyGender, etc. The group also welcomes those who want to explore their identity, but who may not need or want to classify themselves. All individuals are encouraged to explore their individual selves, without concern or pressure that the next step need be ‘transitioning,’ and without concern about fitting into other people's definitions. Make up your own! The Diversity Center's GenderQueer Peer Support Group provides a supportive and interactive experience at the center. The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month.

For more information, contact Sean Senechal at genderqueer@diversitycenter.org

60Plus Luncheon

Inner Light Ministries (map)

We happily host a 60Plus Luncheon five times a year: January, March, May, September and November. We start with social time and a yummy lunch followed up with a talk about an important topic of interest to LGBTQ+ seniors or some light entertainment. A great way to help you digest! In an effort to keep the cost as low as possible we ask you to pay $7 - but only if you're able. No pressure. We look forward to seeing you!
