What we're about
Are you under 25, living in Dallas and seeking a new like-minded community?
Do you find yourself looking around seeing everyone enjoying life yet you feel lonely?
Do you feel no: one gets you?
Are you in a place of uncertainty around your future?
Are you anxious about being seen in the community?
Looking for new friends and connections?
Are you kicking goals in life, and now wondering what's the next journey?
Are you experiencing challenges in forming relationships?
Not sure of what your career path will look like? Maybe you don't have a clear plan or direction? Would you benefit from a mentor from the LGBTQ community?
If you've answered yes to one or any of the above, this is your group and your community.
As a new resident of Dallas, and someone who came out at 15years of age I have experienced and can connect with all the statements above at many points on my journey. Originally from England, I have gone on to travel the world many times, lead a successful Social Work career in Melbourne, Australia before arriving in the US just last year my with husband. I now coach professionals around the world, co: host a podcast show and soon to release a book.
In this community, I vision a community of up and coming LGBTQ Youth connecting, forming friendships and supporting each other through the various stages of life. Think along the lines of a space of mentoring to achieve great things, not a space of therapy.
The essence of this space will be fun, sharing of stories (so much power for us all in this) and a place of building respect for ourselves and each other to achieving great things.
I am also hosting a meetup group for LGBTQ Professionals and wonder could there be a crossover to form an LGBTQ mentor program? This is something we can explore if you see any value as we build traction.
This is not a place for judgment or open sexual solicitation, this is your community within a community to connect and share your successes, challenges and to form a healthy support network.
