PRYSM
May 20 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

PRYSM is a safe space where 13-17 year old LGBTQ teens and straight allies can come together and do a variety of activities. Most high schools in Memphis do not have Gay Straight Alliances (GSAs). PRYSM is a fun place to make connections with other schools and peers. The group is held at OUTMemphis in Cooper Young and meets every Saturday from 4-6pm.

Feel free to stop by the center to hear more
information, or contact Stephanie Reyes at sreyes@mglcc.org

If you know anyone who might be interested, please don’t hesitate to pass the information along!

Parents are invited to drop off and pick up their teens and are welcome to wait outside of the group meeting space.

This is a teen only group.

Ace (Asexual) Movie Night and Potluck
May 23 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

No Sex in the City Tonight!

Join us for the inaugural meeting of Memphis’s newest social group, a group for individuals who identify as asexual or are questioning this aspect of their identity.

What is Asexuality?

Asexuality is a sexual orientation just like homosexuality, bisexuality, and heterosexuality. People who identify as asexual typically experience a lack of sexual attraction or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity. It isn’t a choice like being celibate; asexuality is usually a stable identity. Asexuals may desire intimate romantic relationships that may include lots of forms of physical touch like hugging, kissing, holding hands, and cuddling. Their romantic relationships may be homosexual, bisexual, or heterosexual, and they may be monogamous or polyamorous.

Why this group?

People who identify as asexual face significant societal stigma that frequently prevents them from being able to be out about their identity or to explore the possibility of being asexual. While there are groups online where asexuals can connect for support and camaraderie, there is a significant barrier to meeting other asexuals face-to-face. We want to change that by creating a group at OutMemphis that will give asexual-identifying individuals a place to go and be with other folks who understand them. We intend it to be primarily a social group, but we also want people to have a place where they can find support either dealing with or exploring the possibility of being asexual.

The Inaugural Meeting

Who: Anyone who identifies as asexual or is questioning that aspect of their life
What: Potluck followed by screening of the documentary (A)sexual
When: May 23, 2017, 6-9 pm
Where: OutMemphis, 892 Cooper Street, Memphis, 38104
Why: Because we need to
