Our LGBTQ+ Group is a place to connect with others and grow as a community. We will talk about what it means to be an LGBTQ+ adult on Cape Cod. We’ll celebrate happy moments together and support each other when times are difficult. This is a safe place for LGBTQ+ individuals to share all experiences. Each person has an opportunity to speak if they wish and discussions are completely confidential. We speak from our own experiences and respect the experiences of others, so please come with an open mind and help us create a supportive, judgement-free zone. There is no fee for this group. We will be meeting via Zoom. Please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
*For those 18 years or older
Please Note: While we understand that running late is sometimes unavoidable, doors will close 10 minutes after the group begins in order to avoid interruptions while people are sharing.
