Re: Topic Tuesday // Pride Month: Connection and Growth // Tues 28th June, 2022 7-8:30PM AEST

Let’s get started! 

  

Welcome everyone to our Topic Tuesday live event discussing Pride Month: Connection and Growth. My name is Girasole, myself a part of the LGBTIAQ+ community, and today I am joined today by our special guest, Peer Support Worker @TuxedoCat, as well as @TideisTurning. 

 

@TuxedoCat, would you like to introduce yourself? 

  

Tonight, we will be talking about Pride Month and finding community, strength and healing through challenging circumstances.  

 

We invite community members to jump in, share your experiences and ask questions. In this discussion, LGBTIAQ+ and questioning people, carers, loved ones, and allies are welcome – we will have questions for you as well as ones we will ask to TuxedoCat 😊 

  

As we get started on the first question, we invite all those following along to introduce yourself and what brings you to the discussion tonight 🌈

Hello my name is Clawde and know that there is still a mountain of work to be done to be accepted being different 🙃

Re: Topic Tuesday // Pride Month: Connection and Growth // Tues 28th June, 2022 7-8:30PM AEST

Hey all, I’m TuxedoCat! I’m a non-binary, queer peer support worker! I’m super excited for all of us to share our experiences. I wanna be upfront, I am by noooooooo means an expert in any of this and I’ll be sharing mostly from my own experiences of being queer/LGBTQIA+, living rurally and my experiences around gender and mental health. We’ll all have different experiences and they’re all equally valid. I’m so excited for us to learn from and support each other! 

Re: Topic Tuesday // Pride Month: Connection and Growth // Tues 28th June, 2022 7-8:30PM AEST

Welcome @Clawde, its great to have you here 😊

Re: Topic Tuesday // Pride Month: Connection and Growth // Tues 28th June, 2022 7-8:30PM AEST

Hi everyone!

First time joining one of these live discussions. I consider myself part of the LGBTIAQ+ community.

Just wanted to join to learn more about sexuality, as I'm not fully 'out' yet to everyone I know.

Re: Topic Tuesday // Pride Month: Connection and Growth // Tues 28th June, 2022 7-8:30PM AEST

Hi Everyone, I'm TideisTurning, one of the Peer Support Workers here 😊 

 

I'm just going to tag a few members online in case you'd like to join us @Adge @Appleblossom @BlueBay @Christheart @Dimity @Emelia8 @Frangipani2  @Jay5 @Lola5 @Meggle @Mumi @Shaz51 @Snowie @StuF @TAB @TheVorticon
