Trans Spectrum Discussion Group

The Trans Spectrum Discussion Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays on Zoom. The group serves exclusively to members who identify under the trans umbrella. This would mean, those who identify as an ally, friend, family, or out of the trans umbrella are not invited to the space. This ensures that the voices of those who fall under the trans umbrella have a safe space dedicated to address and discuss the experiences of members. Please note, the Trans Spectrum Discussion Group is not affiliated with the Center

If interested in being a part of the group, please contact hvtransspectrum@protonmail.com to receive the Zoom link.

Wednesday Wind-Up Writing Party

The Hudson Valley LGBTQ+ Community Center is excited to offer a new ongoing social Writing Party series, facilitated by The Generations Project, starting April 21st and continuing on the Third Wednesday of every other month through August, (June 16th, August 18th), from 5-6:30pm EST!

At each session, TGP facilitators will guide participants through a variety of short creative writing prompts, designed to help each person express themselves, share their story and get to know each other. No writing experience necessary! These are fun, accessible exercises to flex your imagination and get to hear the perspectives of other generations of LGBTQ+ people. April’s session falls just before Earth Day, so we’ll be exploring related themes: the Indigenous history of the land, the environment and our global queer community.
