Hey Everyone!

This Fall semester, we are going to have an amazing mix of both in-person and virtual programs covering a wide variety of topics that are happening in the community. Some of them include the LGBTQA+ and TNBGE Therapy Groups, Kiki Studios, an upcoming Exhibition, and more! More updates on other events will be coming up shortly! We hope to see everyone at upcoming events and in the space.
