COVID-19 UPDATES FROM WE ARE FAMILY
In light of public health concerns related to COVID-19, all We Are Family peer discussion groups are canceled as of March 16th until further notice. Notifications will be sent to participating youth via Remind (text app) as to when these meetings will resume. In the interim, LGBTQI+ youth are encouraged to join an upcoming virtual discussion group via Q Chat Space, operated by CenterLink.
In the interim, because we know that social isolation can have major repercussions for our trans and queer communities, we’re launching a virtual series – #CouchConnections – on Facebook and Instagram Live every Friday! Tune in THIS FRIDAY at 2:00pm for our topic: Peer Discussion. In addition, LGBTQI+ youth are encouraged to join an upcoming virtual discussion group via Q Chat Space, operated by CenterLink.
We’ve also made the decision to postpone our upcoming events, including The Rainbow Market (April 4th), Charleston Queer Prom (April 18th), 25 Years of WAF Family Picnic (April 25th), and Lowcountry GSA Coalition Meeting (April 30th) to fully comply with state and local guidelines on public gatherings. We’re hoping to reschedule these events soon.
Lastly, Closet Case Thrift Store will close its physical doors until further notice for the health and well-being of our shoppers and our staff. However, Closet Case is open 24/7 online. Shop select lewks via Poshmark and get your WAF merch on our website today!
