TDOR Transgender Day of Remembrance – Sunday, Nov. 20th from 7pm to 9pm


TDOR Transgender Day of Remembrance will be on the steps of Ciy Hall tonight. The TDOR proclamation signed by the Mayor will be read. There will be poetry and speakers honoring those that have been murdered due to trans hate. The names of the victims and where they were from will be read (we will not read the cause of death). At the end there will be time for audience members to come up on the steps and share if they would like to. It will be cold this night, but there will be hot cider and hand warmers and warm hearts too. In case of rain, TQ will be donating rain ponchos to the first 50 people. This is the most important event of the year and it is imperative that we show our support, solidarity and love by remembering those that have lost their lives.

TDOR – Gainesville, FL (

Monday, 10/24, 7:30pm to 9pm – TQ Monthly meeting

First half is discussion on “Social Anxiety and Emotional Intelligence” and second half, as always, is social time. Trans-friendly awesome space with only gender-neutral bathrooms. We meet outside on the pavilion. Look for the really cool people surrounded by large trans and Pride progress flags and non binary flag banners. 

(Please email: for address and details) 


9/18 – join us at the track to hang out, sit and play games and/or eat a picnic dinner, or take a lovely walk together, there are a dozen other choices of things to do. You don’t have to walk or exercise. Just come to chill. We have the place to ourselves. If it rains we will meet a few feet away to the North under the covered porches. Great way to start your week!


August 11th from 7:30 to 9pm this is a combo social and spoken word and open mic event. You do not need to perform or speak. You can just listen and be an audience member. Outside on the pavilion. Look for the Pride Progress flag and the friendly people hanging out around it. The first 45 minutes is poetry, stories or just things on people’s minds. The second half is everything else: music, singing, crafts, interpretive dance etc.
