The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Senior Services and Trans Lounge are joining forces once again to offer this new weekly INTERGENERATIONAL sharing and storytelling group.
In this 90-minute online group, folks from our Seniors Services program and Trans* Lounge will come together as one to share a poem, song, recipe, or arts and crafts that you’ve created or just their amazing experiences. Whatever is near and dear to you. There is so much we can learn from one another and there is always a story behind each painting, book, article of clothing, object, or even your pets. We want to hear all about it!
Join us each Wednesday and tell us the stories behind the treasures in your home. All are invited to share, although it is not required to participate.
