What we're about
Navigating this crazy city as a millennial is challenging enough. Add being a POC on top of that. Add being Queer on top of that.
As a sorta transplant (Grew up in LI, family in Queens + Bronx, moved to Brooklyn 2 years ago), I'm at least an hour away from everyone I know. Making friends was always a challenge for me growing up and it's even harder now as an adult. I often felt, and still do feel "Othered" in straight, feminine spaces. Even though my college experience introduced me to friends that became family, they are now all miles away.
This is a group for NYC dwellers (transplants and natives) to build genuine relationships with others who they can relate to and grow with through the struggles of adulting in this economy, being a professional POC, dating while Queer, and everything in between. I want this group to look like anything from happy hours and open mics to traveling abroad together and planning bachelor/bachelorette parties. But first, we must create a space for relationships to grow!
