LGBTQ+ Connections: A 50+ Social Group

Meets on the 4th Sunday of the month

1:00  to 2:30 PM

Meeting virtually on Zoom. Email or call (845) 353-6300 (leave us a message and we’ll call you back) for information about how to join this group over the computer.


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!

Contributions are voluntary and confidential and are used to expand the services for which they are received.  No one will be denied services because of an inability or unwillingness to contribute. 

Services are funded in part by the Administration for Community Living, New York State Office for the Aging and the Rockland County Office for the Aging”

Why Our Pride Center Matters

Claudette & Patricia

Being around my community without fear of judgement is important to me

Visibility is essential. Invisibility is not an answer; it costs too much.

The Pride Center gives our community a safe space – a place to be unapologetically ourselves, a place to go when we need a home away from home.
