Overview of Meetings

A brief overview of what our meetings look like.  Some meetings will vary from this, but in general this is the format we follow.
1. Read Group Guidelines

We read the group guidelines, asking anyone who’s willing to read a few sentences.

2. Check-Ins/Introductions

After reading the group guidelines, we introduce ourselves, stating our name and pronouns, as well as filling the group in on what’s been happening in our lives. This can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour.

3. Discussion

We open up the group to questions, discussions, or further exploring any topics that came up during Check-ins.  If there are 10 or more people in attendance, we sometimes break into two smaller groups to allow more people more time to participate.

Discussion topics can include anything including gushing over your favorite TV show, but we prioritize subjects related to gender, sexuality, transitioning, mental and physical health, and community resources. Please note, that as part of being safe space for folks to share about their lives, discussions on dating and intimacy do come up.

4. Wrap-up/Announcements

About 10 minutes before the end of the meeting, we open it up to announcements.
