Response to Covid-19

We know things are tough, we’re here to help. 

First off – our apologies for not being very active communicators – the struggles of being a volunteer run organization are real. For the past month we have been trying to plan Chaharshanbe Suri and Nowruz events. We were especially excited because we had a private queer space for Chaharshanbe Suri. Unfortunately – due to recent events, we and our partners decided it was best to cancel all events before we could even announce them in order to keep our community safe and healthy. Now – we know things are pretty crappy due to the COVID-19 pandemic – so we are announcing changes to our Membership program and the return of Community Support Groups and Community Meetings – this time virtual! 

Community Meetings allow us to come together, get to know each other, reflect on the organizing for the community, and help us plan future events and initiatives. In order to keep folks accountable and to maintain a safe space – this meeting is limited only to MENA QTs members.
March 25 – 7PM
April 8 – 7PM

Join us for a peer support group in which LGBTQ+ persons from the MENA region can process experiences in a safe space. Group discussion can foster support and develop ways of coping with struggles afflicting our community. Advanced registration and screening required. 
March 20 – 6PM
