Adaptations And/Or
Join us once a month for a social activity. Maybe we'll try out a new restaurant, perhaps we'll play bingo or watch a movie together. Adaptations wants to create an inclusive and safe place for people who identify as lgbtq AND/OR are curious what it means to be "not straight". While Adaptations programs are open to anyone who has had an intake, this group is especially for people who identify as lgbtq, are curious, or questioning their sexuality. All participants must have an intake to join Adaptations programs. Please contact Dorsey Massey at dmassey@jccmanhattan.org for more information about our intake seasons. (more)REGISTER
