Starting this month, the Out Spoken project will run a series of online peer support groups. These are for LGBTQI+ adults across Yorkshire who are autistic and/or have a learning disability. There will be two sessions a month – one themed discussion and the other being a check-in.

The sessions, run by our CHANGE team and Yorkshire MESMAC, will be on Zoom. They are all free to attend. Here is a list of dates, times and topics:

  • Mon 7th Feb – 6–7pm – LGBTQI+ History Month Discussion
  • Wed 16th Feb – 1–2pm – Check in
  • Mon 7th March – 6-7pm – Assertiveness
  • Wed 16th March – 1–2pm – Check in
  • Mon 11th April – 6-7pm – Active Listening
  • Wed 20th April – 1–2pm – Check in

Is this a bad time for you? Please get in touch and let them know. They can talk more with you about arranging some sessions at a different time or day.

The Out Spoken project is open to all LGBTQI+ people who are autistic and/or have a learning disability. This includes people who may be waiting for an autism diagnosis and people who have self-defined as autistic. We welcome people who may be unsure and are exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

If you have any questions about the sessions, please email [email protected] or call the office on 0113 244 0606 and ask for Jude.
