Gay men of all ages and walks of life are welcome and this group traditionally serves as a weekly social meeting for gay men ages 18+. Generally, topics of discussion relevant to gay men will be introduced for the group to talk about, i.e. healthy sexuality, current events, leadership development, and much more. The group also hosts biweekly potlucks that are not to be missed. So, whether you are new to Missoula, visiting for the day, or looking to reconnect with the community be sure to stop by.
Trans, Intersex, & Nonbinary Group
Groups held on the 2nd and 4th (and 5th) Thursday of each month are social groups guided by a Center staff member with a focus on gathering and conversation. These groups are a hybrid of Zoom and in-person at the Center depending on each individual's preference for joining. Certain meetings may include fun outings in the community.
Both versions of the group generally consist of a mix of new and returning members with diverse backgrounds, ages, and identities. Members do not have to live in Missoula. There are no requirements to join a T.I.N. group meeting other than a desire to find community in a respectful environment!
To see the schedule, topics, and social group details for each upcoming month of T.I.N. meetings, visit the Center's Instagram (@lgbtmontana), or Facebook page (The Western Montana Community Center).
