Queer Talk is a series of events for people who identify on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. Events include one-off game nights for people to meet peers and build connections; open book clubs to get to know others in the queer community while reading community care, healing, and anti-oppressive books together; Role Playing Games (RPG) campaigns to practice our skills in crisis intervention; and Queer Peer Advocacy support groups to strengthen our safety nets and to make room for our own healing processes, while supporting others. Dates and times for book clubs and open games nights are listed above and below and are also listed in our events tab on Facebook. Please reach out about Queer Peer Advocacy Support Groups or RPG by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Queer Talk Book Club is in Partnership with MCPL. For the first book of this year, we are reading "Braiding Sweetgrass" by Robin Wall Kimmerer. We have a book club kit! Please contact Lindsey@middlewayhouse.org if you would like a hard copy of the book. It is also available as an e-audio and e-book through the MCPL hoopla account (available for free with your library account).
