LGBTQ+ Connections: A 50+ Social Support Group

connections: a 50+ LGBTQ+ Group

Meets on the 4th Sunday of the month

1:00 – 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 is 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!

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.
