LGBTQ+ Community Programming
We’re conducting most LGBTQ+ Programs virtually via Zoom. Our team has worked to ensure that your virtual program experience is as smooth and meaningful as possible.
Visit our Calendar for program descriptions and dates, then register to attend. Attendance information for virtual meetings will be made available via email, text, and/or our private social Facebook groups.
Metro Inclusive Health Community Programming
LGBTQ+ Programs are designed as safe spaces for individuals like you to make new friends, socialize, and find support through similarly-identified peers. By the way… Did you know that our programs are offered at no cost to the community and are made possible by donor support? Your contribution today could go towards feeding dinner to local LGBTQ+ youth, giving life-enriching programming to LGBTQ+ elders, or providing support to local trans community members.

Youth (ages 13-17)
Affirming spaces and role models are SO important for the mental health of LGBTQ+ youth. That’s why our Youth Nights and Youth Peer Support weekly programs are designed for teens of all gender identities, expressions, and romantic/sexual orientations, including allies! In 2019, 100% of participating youth reported an increase in confidence.
By going virtual, METRO has extended its reach to communities without resources with new attendees joining from across Florida, other states and even Canada!
Young Adult Socials: YAS! (ages 18+)
Sometimes, finding an accepting and understanding social group can be tough. It’s time to connect with new faces and friends! Whether bonding over memes, JackBox games, or similar identities/orientations, connecting is easy at Young Adult Socials… YAS!
SAGE (ages 50 & better)
New to the area and looking for friends? As a SAGE affiliate, we offer discussion spaces and social outings to a traditionally underserved population for whom the challenges of aging compounded by marginalization and discrimination. SAGE has been the leading force of support and advocacy in the LGBT aging field since 1978.
Trans community programs promote solidarity, community resource sharing, and peer support. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to participate: feminine, masculine, and non-binary identities alike.
