A group for people aged 19+ to discuss coming out. The first half of each meeting will focus on the advertised topic; the last half will be an open discussion. We meet on the fourth Wednesdays of the month. If there is enough demand, we will see if we can add a second meeting each month. NOTE: This is a cell-phone-free environment. During each group meeting we require that participants put their phones away, and focus on what is happening in the group – out of respect for other participants.

We are sorry to announce that we are unable to continue offering our Outdoor Recreational Group (ORG) at this time. We no longer have a volunteer who is able to take on the duties required to run this program.
To revive this program we would need a responsible volunteer who was committed to organizing the Outdoor Recreational Group. If you are interested in doing this, please contact our Volunteer Team at email@example.com

A group where people from diverse cultures gather together at SPECTRUM to discuss what it is like to be LGBTQ+ across the world. We meet on the second Thursdays of the month.
This social drop-in event is a great opportunity to meet other people, to talk about whatever you currently have on your mind, and to make new friends! Come and hang out with us in a casual, relaxing atmosphere where you can just be yourself! This event is ideal for you if you just want to socialize in an LGBTQ-friendly setting.
We typically talk about anything that comes to mind, from TV shows to languages to fairy tales to technology to music – and occasionally LGBTQ issues. We also have cookies and other (sometimes healthier) snacks to share. Feel free to drop in at any time between 2-5 pm. Everyone is welcome!
Visit us on Facebook.
Generally the 4th Thursday of the month.

SRC is SPECTRUM’s re-vamped reading circle. We meet at SPECTRUM on the 4th Thursday of the month from 7 – 8:30 PM. We read short stories and articles aloud, on the spot, so no prep is required. Participants are, however, encouraged to bring readings. Personal reflections on the material are encouraged. We often spend longer discussing the literature than listening or reading.
