Social Support: Pride
June 23, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
Topic Discussion begins at 7:30 – 9:00pm
June is LGBT Pride month. For many in the LGBT community, Pride is a very important time of the year, where people gather at PrideFest, companies have LGBT Pride days or events, and even the President makes proclamations and hosts celebratory parties at the White House. Some trans people and loved ones feel excited and positive about Pride, while others may view being trans as not something pride-worthy, or may not want to be out about being trans. The meeting will include video clips and images about Pride that will jump start our discussion, allowing for a wide ranging discussion.
Open rap is from 6:00 – 7:15pm
Open rap is the time to connect connection with fellow Trans+ and SOFFA individuals. This gently facilitated time is especially devoted to exploring the issues you bring in – sharing your experiences and stories, asking questions, seeking referrals, gathering resources. We’ll assure this hour+ will stay focused on your needs, and the discussion you generate.
