We're only as strong as the bricks that create us. Meaning, if there's a social group need that isn't listed here, let us know.
Are you LGBTQ going through recovery? Is there a LGBTQ Recovery Group in existence? Want to start one?
Are you LGBTQ and into organized sports? Do you know of an LGBTQ Sports group already in existence locally? Interested in starting one?
Are you Transgender and need to converse with others who share experiences in a safe space? Want to start a group online?
The Jackson Pride Center encourages our community to express themselves freely, and in groups of like-minded people. We need your help in listing locations and times of such groups. If you don't see it, let us know. We can assist in getting you started.

We strive to link people together with common needs and concerns, so that they can bond together and build a stronger community from within. All Meetup groups have been suspended until further notice, as we're working on connecting community together virtually.
