We are thrilled to announce two new groups, one for youth and one for adults, to discuss LGBTQ+ issues and topics in a safe, welcoming environment. Pepperell resident J.D. Melendez has volunteered as the facilitator. For over 20 years, J.D. has been working with LGBTQ+ people, with a focus on transgender and LGBTQ+ youth communities.
The first LGBTQ+ Youth Group meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 2 at 6:30 PM. The inaugural LGBTQ+ Adult Group meeting is being held on Wednesday, May 30 at 6:30 PM.
In other LGBTQ+ news, our newest staff member, Amy (That's me!), is proud to identify an LGBTQ+ ally. I previously worked at the Bentley University Library where I was a member of the university's LGBTQ Ally Network.
We hope that you will join us for conversation and snacks. And be on the lookout for more LGBTQ+ special events in the future.
