Real Talk LGBTQ Zoom Hangout – Thursday, February 17th
February 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
LGBTQ folks with cognitive disabilities (or folks with cognitive disabilities who are questioning or curious about their gender and / or orientation) meet using the Zoom app, watch some Real Talk videos, and participate in a conversation facilitated by a certified sexual health educator.
Everybody has questions about dating, love, relationships, and sex. things like:
- How do I meet a boyfriend / girlfriend / partner?
- How do I let my family know that I want to date?
- How can I make sex safer?
- What is consent?
It’s totally normal. But sometimes it can be hard to know where to get good information. At this event, we’ll watch some Real Talk videos, and have a conversation hosted by a Certified Sexual Health Educator. We’ll talk about where to get good information, who can support us with this stuff, and how to figure out confusing situations. People are welcome to talk about things, or to just listen if they don’t want to talk.
If you want a family member, friend, or staff member to support you to tune in to the Zoom Hangout, that’s great. They don’t need to register, they can just show up with you.
Please note: The maximum number of attendees at a Real Talk Zoom Hangout is 12. We do this so that everyone has a chance to participate and share ideas if they want to. If you try to register someone and the event is full – don’t worry, we’ll be running these frequently while Social Distancing is in effect. If you have an event link from signing up one person please DON’T pass it on to others who have not registered. This will keep the event more confidential and more useful for everyone.
Sadly, we can’t accommodate latecomers to our events! Please arrive no later than 10 minutes after the start time!
