LGBTQ+ Community Programming

All are welcome. Including you.

LGBTQ+ Programs at Metro Inclusive Health are designed as safe, no-cost spaces for individuals like you to make new friends, socialize, and find support among similarly-identified peers.

COVID-19 Update

Many of our programs are available in a virtual setting during the COVID-19 pandemic. In-person groups have a limited capacity and require masks indoors. Learn more.

Youth

Affirming spaces and role models are SO important for the mental health of LGBTQ+ youth. That’s why our weekly Youth Socials and Youth Peer Support programs are designed for teens (ages 13-17) of all gender identities, expressions, and romantic/sexual orientations, including allies!

That’s not all! Learn about all of our programs available for youth, including sexual health education programs, here.

Young Adult Socials: YAS!

Sometimes, finding an accepting and understanding social group can be tough. It’s time to connect with new faces and friends! This bi-monthly meeting is a drug and alcohol-free space for hanging out with queer and allied young adults (18+), while building friendships and support systems. Connecting is easy at Young Adult Socials… YAS!

SAGE (ages 50 & better)

Recently retired, newly single, or just looking for friends? As a SAGE affiliate, METRO offers discussion spaces and social outings for those whom the challenges of aging may be  compounded by marginalization and discrimination. SAGE has been the leading force of support and advocacy in the LGBT aging field since 1978. Join for cards, coffee and conversation!

Gay & Bi Men's Discussion

Join in on the conversation! Gay & Bi Men’s Discussion is a casual meetup to discuss events, pop culture, dating life and relationships, and more. This group is open to a variety of topics surrounding life as a gay and/or bisexual man. Meet new friends and connect with likeminded people. Will we see you there?

Trans Community

Trans community programs promote solidarity, community resource sharing, and peer support. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to participate. 

Check out our Trans Feminine, Trans Masculine, and Outside the Binary groups! Additional support and resources are also available — start the conversation with one of our Trans Support Navigators!
