Chronic Health Group

Chronically LGTBQ (CQ) is a monthly facilitated group for LGTBQ people living with chronic health conditions and/or disabilities. CQ provides a safe, supportive environment where LGTBQ-identified people can come together and share what’s going on in their lives, whether it relates directly or indirectly to their chronic health issues or disabilities. Participants talk, listen, support each other, laugh and cry together. They can be themselves fully and openly without fear of judgments. Meetings also include self-care activities and social events.

Discussion topics have included coming out as someone with a disability, grief and loss, spirituality, dating, and sexuality. Self-care has included workshops on art expression, journal writing, reflexology, and shiatsu. Social events include arts and crafts, Pride barbecues, and holiday dinners. Chronically LGTBQ meets the Second Friday of the month, 2:00p.m.– 3:30 p.m. at  103 – 1033 Davie Street. This building is wheelchair accessible. To join, drop-in to a meeting!
