Online LOCAL Watertown, MA “Open” Gender Identity Support Group for Adults, 10/20/20, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM ET

October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, Free

DESCRIPTION: This group is for adults on (or near) the autism spectrum, who are interested in discussing and exploring their gender in a supportive setting. Most people who attend identify as transgender, nonbinary, and/or genderfluid, and some are questioning their gender identity or gender roles. Join us to share stories and perspectives, and to get support. This group is led by a peer moderator who identifies as autistic and transgender.

We always meet on the third Tuesday of the month.

UPDATE: Until further notice, all meetings will be held online, via video conference. If you are new to the group, please email Erik at erik@aane.org to inquire about attending.
