COMMUNITY GROUPS

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center hosts a number of different community discussion and social support groups both in-person and virtually. Meetings with virtual components feature live closed captioning.

Our community is diverse. Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites participation in community groups that elevate and celebrate our many backgrounds and lived experiences. All of the community groups that meet at the center are facilitated and organized by community members; they are not support groups led by licensed professionals. Community groups are intended for people of a specific lived experience. Please respect the importance of intra-group community building.

Need more information? Do you want to get involved but need help deciding which community group to join? 
Please email [email protected] or (610) 347-9988 to ask questions, introduce yourself, or schedule a phone call meeting if that would help you feel more comfortable attending the group.
