    A peer support group for autistic queer and trans people to be able to make friends and have discussions in a low-social-pressure, semi-structured, and lightly-moderated environment. The group aims to facilitate a space for community and connection for autistic queer and trans people.

    People who are questioning are welcome. That includes all questioning folks, including people who are autistic and questioning whether or not they are queer or trans and people who are queer or trans and questioning whether or not they are autistic.

    All diagnoses are welcome, including formally diagnosed, self-diagnosed, and questioning. We recognize the financial barriers of diagnosis and do not require a diagnosis for participation or assign people value based on diagnosis status. We welcome folks with varying levels of support needs. This is an adult group for people 18+.

    How do you sign up to attend? Email [email protected] with the subject line “Autistic Queer Support Group”. You don’t have to write anything in the body of the email. You will receive back further instructions on how to attend our meetings as well as an information package on what to expect from the group.

    Feeling nervous about attending? You will not be required to interact with other participants verbally (you can instead use message functions if that is easier for you). You can keep your camera off if appearing on-screen seems intimidating or tiring. You can also choose not to interact at all and attend just to listen.

    If you are a woman who has been hurt by homophobia within any organized religion or faith, the Gloriously Queer (GQ) support group provides peer support and connection with others going through a similar experience. Participants can speak freely and embrace all aspects of their identity in a supportive, accepting, and confidential environment.

    Facilitator Gina, who was born in Egypt and raised in an Orthodox Christian church, has experienced firsthand growing up and coming out in a community that actively condemns homosexuality. She created this group to bring women together who can relate to this struggle, and to find connection and empowerment through their shared experience. GQ aims to support marginalized and vulnerable individuals, and at this time the group is open only to women. (Trans, non-binary, and cis women are all welcome.)
