Family Dinner

A monthly discussion space for Parents, Families, and Caring Adults of LGBTQ+ youth. All ages are welcome in this multi-generational space that occurs on the last Wednesday of each month. We welcome and HIGHLY encourage caring adults to join this space as co-facilitators. This idea grew from what was formerly known as Transparent, so that the discussion could be more expansive and more inclusive.
