Love is …
February 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
With Valentine’s Day (or Día de Amor y Amistad) a couple of days away, it seems like the perfect time to talk about healthy relationships. Humans thrive on social connection and the social, emotional, and physical benefits we receive from them. They can provide us with a sense of belonging, which is invaluable for queer people of color. Unfortunately, a lot of what we learn about what romantic relationships look like comes from tv shows, movies, or other media or what we may have seen at home growing up. That leaves QPOC with very few references to draw from when forming our own romantic relationships.
So let’s talk about it! Consent, respect, communication, boundaries, trust, etc. And what to do if we don’t see or feel these things. Talking about our relationships can help us feel supported and creates a shared image of healthy relationships, especially when we feel confused, hurt, or unworthy due to past relationship experiences. Let’s remind one another that we are worthy of healthy romantic relationships where we feel treated with dignity and respect. Whether we are single, ready to mingle, dating, or committed, allgo is always prepared to hold space for just you or you and yours.
Join us on Thursday, February 11th at 6 PM CST as we gather to discuss and share our experiences navigating relationships as queer people of color and celebrating the beauty and life we bring to romantic relationships. You can register here.
