Community Groups

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center hosts a number of different community discussion and social support groups both in-person and virtually. Check out our community groups below. 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.

As of February 1st, 2022, everyone entering the center will need to wear a mask and provide proof of vaccination.

Need more info? Contact Robin at [email protected] or (610) 347-9988 [ext. 112] for information about community groups at the center. 

You are welcome to schedule a one-on-one phone call, Zoom, or in-person meeting with Robin, the Supportive Services Coordinator, if that would help you feel more comfortable attending a group. You can also just reach out via email to ask questions or introduce yourself.
