Join us for dinner this Thursday, March 31st 2022, on the outside terrace at Las Margaritas (4405 NW 39th ave, Gainesville, Fl. 32606). We need at least 8 people to show up at 6:30 to be seated – so if you can come early that is great. Dinner: 7:00pm to 9pm. Please invite family, friends and allies. All who support trans visibility are welcome! The ambiance is festive in a bright and colorful setting with fountains. The menu is huge with something for everyone! The hostess became very excited when she heard that we were coming!

Our month of love continues… We had a lovely picnic for Valentine’s with perfect weather. And now we will have a fun and affirming meeting at Curia on the Drag. “What is Love? Haddaway, Hallmark, Homer or Hooks… who’s right?” Participation in the discussion is optional, you can just listen. We will have fun and affirming activities too. Eat yummy food, drink yummy cafe drinks, hang with awesome people and more. The meeting will be outdoors on the pavillion unless weather is a factor, in which case we will move indoors. Look for the big Pride Progress Flag.

We will just hang out in nature on acres of lgbt+ owned property graciously offered by Trinity MCC. We have some fun activities planned too and some warm and fuzzy stuff for VDay which we call TQ Day.  A great time and space for being completely your amazing self!

Monthly Meeting

January 24th 2022 from 7:30pm to 8:30 on Zoom  We will have an informal discussion and just chill among friends. Find out the exciting things we have planned this year.

The topic of discussion for Monday’s meeting:
“the wounded child inside many males is a boy who, when he first spoke his truths, was silenced by paternal sadism, by a patriarchal world that did not want him to claim his true feelings. The wounded child inside many females is a girl who was taught from early childhood that she must become something other than herself, deny her true feelings, in order to attract and please others. When men and women punish each other for truth telling, we reinforce the notion that lies are better. To be loving we willingly hear the other’s truth, and most important, we affirm the value of truth telling. Lies may make people feel better, but they do not help them to know love.”

Remember the tiny TranQuility house from Listserv? Well, the owners of this adorable abode are also talented artist and have been members for quite a while. Kimberly is putting on a Gender Spectrum Portrait Project. The details are in the flyer above. Basically ,she wants to how beautiful Trans people are! At the last TransWord, several of us got to see some of the amazing portraiture that she has already completed. It was fabulous!
