Bold & Beautiful
Bold & Beautiful (B&B) is a social support group for all Trans Women of Color. We meet every Thursday from 7:30pm – 9:30pm. The creation of B&B was necessary to bridge the gap between Trans Women of Color and MGLCC. We share life experiences, learn how to empathize with others more and most importantly we share in preparing a meal that we enjoy together. Our mission is to promote education, community involvement, and healthier living habits; also we promote safe sex practices and ensuring access to testing and preventative care.
7:30 – 9:30PM
For Us; By Us (FU;BU) is a social/support group designed for same gender loving (SGL) men of color (MOC). A primary goal of FU;BU is to foster a safe, creative, and positive space for SGL men of color. FU;BU aims to build positive relationships with self and community through great conversations all while getting to know new faces!
Meristem Women’s Book Club
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.
2nd Wednesday of each month
The Outloud Comedy Showcase and Open Mic is proud to bring great nights of comedy to the MGLCC. In addition to our amazingly talented local Memphis comics, we have brought in comics from Little Rock, Cleveland, Atlanta and more! The open mic segment isn’t too shabby either, we always get some really funny people on board.
The MGLCC is a smoke and alcohol free environment and is restricted to those 18 years of age and up unless accompanied by an adult. A donation of five dollars is suggested. See ya there!
Occasional Fridays at 9 PM. Be sure to look out for the FB events!
