Early GenZ Queer Hangout

1st & 3rd Fridays 5:30-7:00pm

Welcome to the Early Gen-Z Queer Hangout! All who identify with the LGBTQ+ community and are the ages of 18-24 are welcome! It’s hard finding community and friends, especially for some who are not in school. This group’s goal is to establish a safe space to connect with people, express yourself and learn from others.

We meet the first and third Friday of every month from 5:30-7:00pm at the Elting Memorial Library in New Paltz! Any Questions? E-mail

The Hudson Valley LGBTQ+ Community Center programs, events and services are for everyone! If you have an accessibility need, including interpreter or translation services, please e-mail with two weeks notice. If you are unable to give two weeks notice, please still e-mail us and we will work to make as many accommodations as possible.
