The last couple of weeks have been ‘interesting’. I have been simultaneously developing our facilitation training, helping keep the ongoing support we offer running, organising support for new sign ups and setting up the exciting new online talks we are providing from next month!
Like many others, we have been missing Pride here at Chrysalis.
This evening we held a virtual pride for group members and volunteers. It Included a short speech from our CEO Andi and an LGBT+ quiz run by Robin, as well as a general hang out and chat.
We wanted to focus on a mostly celebratory tone, because whilst Pride is a protest, for us right now we needed a celebration – a celebration of people being able to be their authentic selves and be seen and heard as
Another great drop in this week, lots of chatting about all sorts of things from hair removal to voice coaching and many other things, some trans-related others not. Next week the theme will be show and tell – an opportunity to show off what we’ve made, done, or treated ourselves to, or our favourite mug or pet.
After another busy week in the (home) office, it was wonderful to have the drop in for group members, this week the theme was ‘party’ and we had several takes on what that might be for people!
