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

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 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.

Need more info? Please email to ask questions, introduce yourself, or schedule a phone call, Zoom meeting, or in-person meeting, if that would help you feel more comfortable attending the group.
