1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Getting older brings life changes no matter who we are, and being LGBTQ+ can heighten the challenges this brings. Some of us may have physical challenges, we may have lost partners, family, and/or close friends, we may feel isolated or lonely, or we may simply be feeling a lack of opportunity to discuss events whether positive or not so positive with others who share common life experiences.
We plan for the group to be a discussion group about any topic, but we also hope to have other activities depending on group input. LGBTQ+ Connections is a social and support group, not a psychotherapy group, and is free of charge.
The group will be led by Judy Gringorten, Rockland Pride volunteer and local psychotherapist, and Matt Koke a Rockland Pride staff member. Judy and Matt are both proud members of the LGBTQ+ 50+ club!
Youth build community and get support through virtual meetings and one-on-one check ins.
If you or someone you know needs support, please call the Pride Center at 845-353-6300 (leave a message and we’ll call you back) or DM us on Instagram (@rocklandcountypridecenter) to be connected with Alex Francisco, Coordinator of Youth & Young Adult Services.

If you need support or assistance, please reach out to us via phone at 845-353-6300 (leave a message and we’ll call you back), email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message us on Facebook or Instagram.
