LGBTQ2 Community Conversation Meet-Up & Pride Month Film Series

Do you have questions about what the different letters stand for in LGBTQ2? Are you curious about what it actually means when someone is transgender and what to say when you aren’t sure what their gender is? Do you wonder how it can be that some people know these things about themselves when they are as young as 3 years old and some people do not come out until they are in their 60’s?

We want to create a space where we can all learn together and be ourselves. Each of us is touched by things in different ways. As lifelong learners, when we open up to our diversity, life just keeps getting more interesting! Watch the movies in the series that look interesting to you and then come to our community conversation on Monday, June 25th from 1-2pm.

Friday 6/1 1-3pm – “Carol” (in English with Spanish subtitles) An aspiring photographer develops an intimate relationship with an older woman in 1950s New York.

Thank You Councilmember Debora Juarez

We would like to recognize and express our gratitude to Councilmember Debora Juarez for her commitment to expanding senior programs in Northeast Seattle.

This past November, she successfully advocated for the City Council to provide an additional $60,000 in the 2018 budget to support Sound Generations’ Lake City-Northgate Senior Center Project.

This money allows us to provide much needed social work services. It will also help us to expand our “senior center without walls” to the Northgate neighborhood and add a third day of services at the Lake City Community Center.

Thank you Councilmember Juarez for being a true advocate for seniors!

Wired To Be One

Our Connections Peer Support Group has been working on an original rap song since last November.  With the help of Silverkite Community Arts who provided video production and editing, the group was able to create this video, Wired To Be One.  Their inspiring message is about love, equity, inclusiveness, and action. Enjoy!

AgeWise King County recently wrote a nice review of the project in their July newsletter.

The Connections group meets every Wednesday from 10:15am-11:30pm at the Lake City Community Center.
