Join this social gathering, known as “LGBT Quesdays,” to mingle and share with LGBTQ+ people and allies of all ages and backgrounds.

About the Event 

In collaboration with The Generations Project, AARP Oregon presents a monthly virtual social gathering to connect people within the LGBTQ+ community and allies, using writing and discussion prompts. Topics vary from the light and humorous to the personal, allowing participants to find a subject they find easy to write or talk about. 

In honor of LGBTQ+ Pride Month, our guest storyteller will be Michelle Lopez, a first-generation immigrant from Trinidad and a bisexual woman living with HIV. She will share her story of how the LGBTQ+ community offered her support when she needed it most, and how she paid that forward by becoming an advocate for HIV health care, including enrolling her daughter in the first trial that made HIV drugs available for children.  

Between each writing period, the group shares and engages in conversation, guided by facilitators from The Generation Project, which cultivates intergenerational community and preserves LGBTQ+ history through oral story sharing. The organization creates spaces and facilitates programs that foster connection across ages, classes, and sexual and gender identities. No writing experience or time commitment is necessary; each session stands alone.
