Join this virtual social gathering, also 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 intergenerational social gathering designed to connect people within the LGBTQ+ community and allies, using fun writing and discussion prompts. Topics will vary from the light and humorous to the more personal, allowing participants to ﬁnd a subject they relate to and ﬁnd easy to write or talk about.
In honor of AAPI Heritage Month, our guest storyteller will be Pearl Love, a trans woman and immigrant from Taiwan who worked there as a successful female impersonator but had to keep her identity secret from her family and society. She moved to New York City and now shares her story to help others find the strength to be their true selves.
Between each short writing period, the group shares and engages in organic 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 and empathy across all ages, classes, and sexual and gender identities.
No writing experience or time commitment is necessary; each session stands alone. So come to as many as you'd like!
