Join Triangle Community Center and members of the LGBT community in Fairfield County Thursday, August 27th for a performance of Arthur Miller's Broken Glass.
About Broken Glass:
Sylvia, an American Jewish woman, mysteriously becomes paralyzed as news reports thrust Nazi Germany’s Kristallnacht (The Night of Broken Glass) into the American consciousness. As Sylvia’s doctor tries to diagnose this strange affliction, her husband’s debilitating struggle with his Jewish identity comes to light, shattering their already fragile marriage. This powerful late masterpiece by Arthur Miller, one of America’s greatest playwrights, incites a thrilling game of concealment through guilt, tragedy, and love.
This is part of Westport Country Playhouse's LGBT Night Out series. You are encouraged to come by Westport Country Playhouse at 6:30 for a reception, followed by the performance.

Future GAYmes Nights offerings will be chosen during the previous session, so games will change depending on members' interests, and may grow to include options such as video games and trading card games. Though there will be plenty of games available on-site, visitors are more than welcome to bring their own games to share with the rest of the community. Snacks will be provided at some meetings, and bringing additional snacks to share is encouraged!
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is hosting its annual Out of the Darkness Walk at Sherwood Island State Park. Triangle Community Center is supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention by starting up a walking team.
Your participation on our walking team means that you will take a stand. The LGBTQ community faces higher rates of suicide than its peers. When you walk with us, you stand with your community. When you become part of our team, you honor those we have known and cherished who have been lost to suicide. Be active in the community, show your support for a worthy cause, and walk with us.
You can register for the team by visiting TCC's team page right here: http://afsp.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=86527
PFLAG is now at TCC! Come and join other parents for support, information, resources (and yes, laughter) as we share the worries, challenges, surprises, and joys of supporting our transgender, gender non-conforming, lesbian, gay, bisexual or queer kids.
Many people don’t know where to turn when a loved one comes out as LGBTQ. This news may bring tears and fear for the safety of the person coming out. You may be confused, sad, angry, or just want somebody to talk to. PLFAG holds monthly meetings to provide support and information for those whose loved ones are exploring personal issues of sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
At PFLAG, we may initially come for help, but ultimately we help each other and share our journeys and learn from each other. That said, there is no pressure to speak up, or reveal anything beyond your own comfort level at our confidential meetings. Some of our stories may be helpful to you in sorting out your own possibly conflicting feelings.
The first hour of our meetings (3:00 - 4:00) will focus on issues of transgender/gender creative children of all ages, while the second hour of the meeting will be more general, for parents of kids across the LGBTQ spectrum.
Triangle Community Center is hosting its quarterly LGBTQ professionals social on Tuesday, September 22 at 7 PM.

TCC will be providing free snacks and refreshments.
