Social Activities

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.

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.
