Social Support Groups

Research shows that the biggest protective factor for LGBTQ+ people is SOCIAL SUPPORT.  Support from family, friends, coworkers, classmates, supervisors, teachers, and neighbors are all crucial to LGBTQ+ wellbeing.  In addition to the support listed above, building relationships with other LGBTQ+ people has also shown to increase resilience and reduce feelings of social isolation and invisibility.

On this page, you will find a list of our social support groups that are currently meeting virtually over Zoom and in-person at LGBT Life Center.  If you are interested in joining a particular group, please email the contact listed.  

If you have any general questions about our social support group offerings or are having trouble reaching the contact listed, please email or call us at 757-640-0929.

Note: We are currently in the process of relaunching some previous groups that went dormant after COVID, as well as some new offerings!  This page and our Event Calendar will be updated with those as they go live.
