LGBTQI Connection and Positive Images to Host ‘Recovering with Pride: A Holiday Gathering Dec. 9

Join our community event “Recovering with Pride: A Holiday Gathering” on December 9, 3 – 6 p.m. to learn more about what we are doing to support a strong, healthy community for LGBTQ people and fire victims.

We are hosting a community gathering by LGBTQ youth leaders, in collaboration with Positive Images, at the Fountaingrove Lodge, an LGBTQ retirement home. Fountaingrove Lodge residents were evacuated from the fires for several weeks, and were only able to return home recently. Join us as we welcome them back to their home, build connections across generations, and create a space for people to find healing after the fires.

Originally, our Youth Leadership Team was planning on hosting a winter LGBTQ youth dance where they could have fun and be free (and potentially meet their next partner!). After the North Bay Fires, our youth felt a need to bring the whole community together and create a sense of unity. So, we brainstormed with Positive Images and decided to create a collaborative event for the whole LGBTQ community, especially those affected by the fires.
