The Language of LGBTQ+
Sunday, October 13th – after the Potluck Lunch
Many of us want to address our LGBTQ+ friends as they wish to be called.  But what is the current terminology used?  How does one know which is correct in the situation?  Kurt Doan from Havre de Grace, MD will lead a workshop on the language (both antiquated and current) of the LGBTQ+ community. No registration or RSVP necessary, just drop in – all are welcome!
