Volunteer Appreciation Party
Dec 11 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us as we celebrate the amazing volunteers that helped make OUTMemphis a welcoming, empowering home for LGBTQ people in 2018!

At OUTMemphis, volunteers support the work we do at every level. When visiting the community center, often a volunteer is the first smiling face you see. Volunteers greet guests, run tours, connect LGBTQ people to vital community resources, conduct HIV tests, mentor youth, and lead social groups. From the front desk to the board of directors, volunteers are a vital part of the OUTMemphis family.

Join us as we celebrate the amazing contributions volunteers have made to the center this year!

On Tuesday, December 11th join us at OUTMemphis at 6:30p for our annual Volunteer Appreciation Event. We’ll have refreshments and a short program.

See you there!

Meristem Women’s Book Club
Dec 12 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Meristem Book Club is named after the feminist/LGBT bookstore some of you will remember on Cooper just down the street from the Center (1990-1998). Meristem cells are the point of new growth in plants — like stem cells in humans. The book club is named after the bookstore in honor of our past and with hope for our future.

The purpose of the book club is to read and explore written works by women and LGBT authors, and to foster a community of support with like-minded women. Membership is open to women (LBT and straight-identified) in the Memphis area who want to read and discuss books by women and LGBT authors.

For more info check out our website or send us an email (meristem@outmemphis.org).
