Lesbian 55+ Social & Support Group
2nd & 4th Tuesdays
OBC on Main, 630 Main St, Longmont
Boulder County Lesbian Support & Social Group offers support group meetings and social fun for anyone who identifies as 55+ lesbians. Our support meetings emphasize respect for peoples’ experiences and, of course, anyone questioning/deciphering their lesbianism. The group is consciously welcoming to people of color and persons with disabilities and we strive to build and maintain an anti-oppressive inclusive group culture. Each group is led by a peer facilitator, leaders in the lesbian community.
The group attendees have an individual and collective group responsibility to uphold group agreements at all times. All attendees should strive to address any group conflict during the group meeting hours. If a concern is unable to be addressed during the meeting, attendees are encouraged to go to a peer facilitator.
Discrimination of any kind is not tolerated. This includes and is not limited to discrimination based on: race, ethnicity, color, language, national origin, immigration status, sex, gender, gender expression, and socio-economic background and status, military status, marital and familial status, religion, body shape, size, and ability.
As a lesbian support group, we should not preclude transportation as an issue for attending (email firstname.lastname@example.org). At the same time, some of us experience other types of intersecting oppression, as well as privilege. Be aware of how your privilege in certain area might affect what you say and how others are impacted.
