Support Groups

The Pride Center offers a variety of peer support groups where individuals discuss their experiences and challenges in a supportive environment.  The discussions provide the opportunity to share and learn from others’ experiences and help build a sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance to improve the quality of life.  These groups of ‘like-minded’ people also serve as a support ‘network of friends’ which often leads to social opportunities at the Center and beyond.   There is a suggested donation for group participation.

Please check the calendar for details and current dates and times.

Bi the Way

“Bisexual+” is an umbrella term including anyone who is or thinks they might be attracted romantically and/or sexually to more than one gender (including folks who identify as bisexual, pansexual, sexually fluid, omnisexual, among others). We provide a dedicated space for identified and questioning bisexual+ people of all genders to discuss and share the joys and struggles of non-monosexuality. 


Non-Binary Pals

Non-Binary Pals (NBP) is a peer-based support group focusing on the non-binary, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming experience. Our focus is on creating a community for humans finding their place in the gender spectrum.
