What we're about

Fulcrum is an LGBTQ support group that offers a safe space in which individuals from all backgrounds and orientations can share their own LGBTQ-related struggles & triumphs. We are peer-facilitated, and discussion surrounds a selected topic that is broad and can relate to all. Our intention is to create stimulating discussion and provide a medium by which people can learn from the perspectives and experiences of others. This is not group therapy.

Meeting format:

• Welcome & Meeting Rules

• Introductions

• Resources & Announcements

• Group Discussion

• Round Table

Location:

• The Phillip Rush Center: 1530 Dekalb Avenue NE Atlanta, GA 3030 (We meet in the Phillip Rush Center Annex, building directly behind Radial Cafe! See attached photo)
