GAYmes Night is a free social program for anyone who likes playing games, that meets every second Friday here at TCC at 7 PM.From old favorites like Scrabble, to quirky up-and-comers like Cards Against Humanity, GAYmes Night is an LGBTQ-friendly gathering for people who enjoy rolling dice and flipping cards over. 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.
The mission of outdoor and more is to create a fun, adventurous, and friendly atmosphere as a group of us attend local attractions such as hiking destinations, festivals, art exhibits, concerts, and other fun attractions in greater Fairfield County. Outdoor and more will take place either once a month or twice a month. The steering committee that decides the adventures meets the second Monday of the month at TCC.
Triangle Community Center is hosting its quarterly LGBTQ professionals social on Tuesday, September 22 at 7 PM.
This is a forum for you to connect with, network, and engage LGBTQ professionals like yourself. These forums seek to foster an atmosphere where people in the LGBTQ community can meet professionals like themselves and enjoy themselves.
TCC will be providing free snacks and refreshments.
Yoga for Stress Relief is TCC's free yoga course, taught by an experienced yoga instructor.
Whether you're an experienced yoga enthusiast, or are just a beginner, you are welcome to Yoga for Stress Relief. Our yoga instructor Elizabeth Crisci designed this Wednesday evening program to encourage participants to relax, exercise, and relieve stress. You are invited to attend yoga this week!
Yoga for Stress Relief takes place every second Wednesday here at TCC at 7 PM.
TCC's monthly volunteer orientations get you the tools you need to be a great part of our volunteer corps.
Volunteers are encouraged to attend! New additions to our team will:
- Get to know TCC, its staff, programs, and services.
- Learn about our major events.
- Get plugged in with ways they can apply their talents and get involved.
We look forward to meeting you and getting to work!
Connecticut Cares: Celebrating Marriage & Beyond!
October 18, 2015 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Celebrate with Lambda Legal & meet the plaintiffs responsible for bringing marriage equality to all 50 states!
Enjoy brunch, cocktails, premier silent auction and a runway fashion show featuring "The Best of Fall 2015."
This event features Joseph Vitale and Robert Talmas, and two year old son Cooper - plaintiffs from the Obergefell v Hodges Supreme Court case responsible for ushering in marriage equality nationwide in June 2015. Also being featured is Kevin M. Cathcart, Executive Director of Lambda Legal, a leading strategist and spokesperson in the movement to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of LGBT people and people with HIV.
This event will honor Victoria T. Ferrara, ESQ. who founded Ferrara Law Group as well as Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists, LLC. Through these organizations, she has helped numerous international and U.S. couples and individuals have children through surrogacy.
About Connecticut Cares 2015: Marriage & Beyond:
In the last few months, harmful laws were enacted in Indiana, Michigan, and North Carolina that allow private businesses, publicly funded agencies, and public officials to refuse to serve LGBT people based on their personal religious views. This year's theme of Marriage & Beyond is both a celebration of our triumphant Supreme Court victory but also a steadfast reminder on the challenges that remain nationwide. There is still so much work left to do for equality, and we must continue to show that Connecticut Cares!
