    All diagnoses are welcome, including formally diagnosed, self-diagnosed, and questioning. We recognize the financial barriers of diagnosis and do not require a diagnosis for participation or assign people value based on diagnosis status. We welcome folks with varying levels of support needs. This is an adult group for people 18+.

  • Gloriously Queer – Support Group
    7:30 PM-9:00 PM
    August 18, 2022

    If you are a woman who has been hurt by homophobia within any organized religion or faith, the Gloriously Queer (GQ) support group provides peer support and connection with others going through a similar experience. Participants can speak freely and embrace all aspects of their identity in a supportive, accepting, and confidential environment.

    Facilitator Gina, who was born in Egypt and raised in an Orthodox Christian church, has experienced firsthand growing up and coming out in a community that actively condemns homosexuality. She created this group to bring women together who can relate to this struggle, and to find connection and empowerment through their shared experience. GQ aims to support marginalized and vulnerable individuals, and at this time the group is open only to women. (Trans, non-binary, and cis women are all welcome.)
