We meet the first Monday of every month to provide support for lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender people and their parents and family. We provide support for LGBTQ people who are seeking support with coming out and parents who are dealing with being come out to. A trained facilitator leads each small group of about 8-10 people for an hour and a half of support. Come support and be supported! You do not have to say anything during the meeting. You can just sit and listen as others share.
