Online LOCAL Watertown, MA “Open” Gender Identity Support Group for Adults, 8/17/21, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM ET

DESCRIPTION: This group always meets on the third Tuesday of the month and is for post-high school adults on (or near) the autism spectrum, who live within commuting distance of Watertown, MA, and 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.
No autism diagnosis or certainty about gender identity is required to attend. This is a safe place to explore intersecting identities.
No payment is required.
