Older Adults

QMUNITY Generations reflects an exciting and innovative approach to age specific service delivery, education, and community development. Some of the community activities offered for older adults include:

Support/Discussion Groups

GenDiscover - Flirting workshops, potluck socials, reflection and writing circles (poetry slams), TED talks and group discussions, and more! Every month is something different, so come out and discover something new with us.

Twisted Cooks – A community kitchen in which older queers plan, purchase, cook, eat, and clean up a wonderful meal (with something to take home as well!) in a life-affirming and fun evening.
