Monthly Discussion Meeting

Rainbow Seniors of Berkshire County holds a monthly discussion meeting, that is often topic based. Past themes have include talks about Asexuality, Assimilation of the LGBTQ Community, Poetry, LGBTQ authors, an interactive art project, interactive relaxation and stress relief exercise, Growing Up LGBTQ and much more. While topics are the theme of our meeting we also sojourn down various conversational pathways as we talk, often leading to truly enjoyable and thoughtful conversations.

Our monthly discussion meetings take place on the first Saturday of each month at the Berkshire Athenaeum from 2 to 4 PM in the 2nd floor conference room at 1 Wendell Avenue, unless otherwise noted.
