    Open to all who fall under the Neurodiversity umbrella (ASD, Aspergers, PDD-NOS, LD, Bipolar, OCD, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, DD, etc.) and are also queer- identified. This group is a way for queers who are Neurodiverse to socialize and engage with one another. The majority of LGBTQIA socialization evolves around bars and night clubs, which due to sensory and anxiety issues, can be triggering for Neurodiverse people. This group aims to provide an alternative option of navigating the queer social world.
