This group meets virtually (via Zoom) on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. EasternLive closed captioning is available. For Zoom access, email [email protected].

Welcome to Prism! Named for all the rainbows a prism can make when held up to the light, Prism is a group for neurodivergent LGBTQ+ people to gather, build community, and share support. We celebrate neurodiversity and embrace our individual unique perspectives.

"Neurodiversity is not a word about autism alone. It is a word that embraces all neurological uniqueness, all rhythms of neurodevelopment and all the forms by which humans can express themselves and contribute to their world." - New Forums Press

We embrace all neurodivergent people – whether you’re formally diagnosed or not. We are committed to making you feel welcome. Please email Robin at [email protected] if you have anything we can help with to make the group more comfortable and accessible for you.

The group is facilitated by Ian Collins (he/him), BSW.

Expectations for the meeting:

  • Introductions (name/pronouns) and a short (optional) ice breaker question
  • Support / community discussion
    • Members are free to bring up life events, reflections, or experiences they want to share or process with the group.
    • Sometimes, there is a discussion topic which the facilitator will announce at the start of the group.
    • Often, members will come to ask questions about local resources or shared experiences, and other members will share.
    • If the group is large, we split into break out rooms so the discussion can be less overwhelming
  • There is never a requirement to speak or share. You can type in the chat and/or share images in the chat if you prefer to engage with group that way or just enjoy the community space. 
  • If you do not want to put your camera on, you never have to -- and facilitators will never ask you to.

You can email them at [email protected] or call them at (610) 347-9988 [ext. 112] to ask questions, introduce yourself, or schedule a phone call, Zoom meeting, or in-person meeting, if that would help you feel more comfortable attending the group.
