I’m happy to announce that this month’s coffee hour is coming up (this weekend!!) and we’ll be going to a tea/ dim sum place in Chinatown called Nom Wah Tea Parlor.
For folks who are new to coffee hour, this is a very chill event where the purpose is to just get to know one another in a relaxed environment. You can come for a short time or stay the duration.. whatever is comfortable with you. I am the point person for this so look for me when you arrive.

This is a monthly event for everyone who is queer, LBTQ, questioning, and curious! We are here to talk about our concerns, questions, coming-out, staying-in, joy, fear, and all things that happen along the way of these experiences! We’re here to support each other.We’re here to have fun! If you think you’re anywhere from 0.001% to 100% queer, join us at Come & Hang Out!

Come join us (along with our co-sponsor, SALGA) on August 19th, at the CUNY Graduate Center to watch the film *I Am*.
Excerpt from http://sonalifilm.com/I-AM.html:
*I Am* chronicles the journey of an Indian lesbian filmmaker who returns to Delhi, eleven years later, to re-open what was once home, and finally confronts the loss of her mother whom she never came out to. As she meets and speaks to parents of other gay and lesbian Indians, she pieces together the fabric of what family truly means, in a landscape where being gay was until recently a criminal and punishable offense.
We’ll provide movie oriented snacks and drinks for you to munch on, and a discussion afterwards. If it tickles your appetite, we’ll head to a restaurant for some dinner together.
