About the event
The Alphabet Set is a social support group for LGBTQ+ 10-12 year olds to connect over games and crafts, explore identities and experiences, celebrate queer culture and history, and build coping skills for managing the emotional impacts of transphobia/homophobia. This group will be facilitated Rousz DeLuca (they/them), LMSW, MFA, a queer and trans therapist and community organizer. There may also be guest facilitators, as well as referrals to other resources in New York for LGBTQ+ kids. This group is in-person, but the option to participate virtually is also available.
