Trans Awareness Week: Self Care Saturday
Nov 17 all-day

Self-care is very important to all people. This week is draining and can be traumatic for some trans/gnc people. Today we should rest, shop, socialize, do absolutely nothing, etc. Whatever brings you peace and light, just do it!

PRYSM
Nov 17 @ 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.

Trans Awareness Week: Trans Girls Rock!

Trans Girls Rock! was inspired and created by local Transwomen to honor and acknowledge the works of Transwomen and gender non-conforming individuals within the city of Memphis and the surrounding areas. The honorees will be acknowledged for their work in Business, Community Involvement, Entertainment, Advocacy, and Overall Impact. This event was also created to dispel thoughts and beliefs society has transposed on Transwomen as a whole.
