Living in the Tension – Mon. September 24

With National Coming out day around the corner next month, we thought that we would take our upcoming gathering on September 24th to share parts of our own stories. For those that are willing to share, we’ll be talking about what motivated us to “come out” (and continue coming out today) regarding our sexual orientation and/or gender identity and what that first exchange was like. We’ll also talk about what it was like to be on the other side of the conversation the first time someone “came out” to us.

We will be meeting at 7pm this upcoming Monday, September 24th. You can find us at our usual spot in Room 120 on 5241 N. Ashland Avenue.

Hope to see you there!

Much love.
