SOGI Tweens Group

The SOGI (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity) Tweens Group is a support group for parents/caregivers and supportive friends or family members of LGBTQIA+ young people entering/in early adolescence - roughly aged 9-15 (with some flexibility). There are so many concerns, challenges, and discoveries occurring around puberty for Queer and TGNC young people (and those who love them!), including identity, sexuality, body image, gender-affirming medical care, names and pronouns, and navigating family, school and peer relationships. Join our community to meet understanding friends, share information and resources, and get support as we strive to show up and advocate for our kiddos to be their most authentic selves. *This group will be facilitated in English but one of our regular facilitators is also fluent in Spanish. Note that this group arose from within the TFP (Trans Families Project) group and families are welcome to join/attend both; SOGI Tweens offers an inclusive, age-group-specific space for families of youth who identify anywhere within the rainbow spectrum. *Las consultas en español están bien!

Loving Elders Support Group

Elders give children the promise of community, continuity, and consciousness of self. They are the spiritual guides that keep culture and personal history alive in the hearts of the young. They nurture the love and understanding that can then withstand the difficulties and appreciate the beauty of our shared walk through life. We love and cherish our grandchildren and may be the most accepting because so many unimportant things are of no concern to us anymore compared to our precious children. If you identify as a grandparent or an intergenerational influence in the life of an LGBTQ+ person join us for the launch of our Loving Elders Support Group. We’ll meet the first Monday of each month from 7:00 - 8:30 pm ET. Learn more and register.
