Kids in Crisis to Hold “Lighthouse” LGBTQ Teen Program on Sept 18

Kids In Crisis has recently acquired Lighthouse, a LGBTQ+ teen group and moved their weekly meeting to Thursdays at 6:00pm at the Stamford Hospital Tully Center. A complimentary supper will be served. (Weekly meetings were formerly held Wednesdays at 700pm at Ferguson Library.)

The group, which also hosts trips, barbecues, parties and movie nights, is announcing a newly formed speaker series, open to the public, called “Queer & Questioning: A Community Forum”. Prominent speakers will be invited to a casual Q&A forum at the Harry Bennett Branch of Ferguson Library in Stamford. The forum is expected to run four times a year.

The next event is scheduled for next Wednesday, September 18 at 7:00pm and will feature CT State Representatives Matt Blumenthal, Jeff Currey and Stamford Board of Ed President, Andy George who will discuss laws around protecting LGBTQ+ Youth.

This event is open to the public. A Pizza Meet & Greet with Rep Blumenthal will be held beforehand at 5:30pm for all interested teens.

Those interested in attending the meet & greet are asked to RSVP to [email protected].
