This group meets virtually (via Zoom) on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Eastern. Live closed captioning is available. For Zoom access, email Events@BradburySullivanCenter.org.
Welcome to Prism! Named for all the rainbows a prism can make when held up to the light, Prism is a group for neurodivergent LGBTQ+ people to gather, build community, and share support. We celebrate neurodiversity and embrace our individual unique perspectives.
“Neurodiversity is not a word about autism alone. It is a word that embraces all neurological uniqueness, all rhythms of neurodevelopment and all the forms by which humans can express themselves and contribute to their world.” – New Forums Press
We embrace all neurodivergent people – whether you’re formally diagnosed or not. We are committed to making you feel welcome. Please email Events@BradburySullivanCenter.org if you have anything we can help with to make the group more comfortable and accessible for you.
The group is facilitated by Ian Collins (he/him), MSW and Robin Gow (it/fae/he).
Expectations for the meeting:
– Introductions (name/pronouns) and a short (optional) ice breaker question
– Support / community discussion
– Members are free to bring up life events, reflections, or experiences they want to share or process with the group.
– Sometimes, there is a discussion topic which the facilitator will announce at the start of the group.
– Often, members will come to ask questions about local resources or shared experiences, and other members will share.
– If the group is large, we split into break out rooms so the discussion can be less overwhelming
– There is never a requirement to speak or share. You can type in the chat and/or share images in the chat if you prefer to engage with group that way or just enjoy the community space.
– If you do not want to put your camera on, you never have to — and facilitators will never ask you to.
