SALGA NYC : Monthly Support Group

Whether it’s sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, religion… we have many facets to our identity. What parts of our identity are most important to us? How does it feel when others make assumptions about who we are? What happens when our own sense of ourselves begins to shift? … Identity can be a touchy thing, not in the least because people are always trying to tell us who we are in both subtle and not…-so-subtle ways, even within our own LGBT community.
