Members of the project, past and present, have taken opportunities to plan and participate in group events. These events are not always planned by the project, and are a way to continue fostering the community and found families through dialogue meetings.

2023 Panel Presentation for Northshore Senior Center’s Lunch and Learn

“The Success and Challenges of an LGBTQ+ Intergenerational Dialogue Project”

Project participants Molly Fulop, Phyllis Johnson, and Joseph Henry joined Karen Morris (project co-facilitator) and Britta Larson (Senior Services Director, Center on Halsted) for a panel presentation for social service providers on the “successes, challenges, and power” of LGBTQ+ intergenerational programming.

Together, and through our various lenses, we reflected on the following prompts, while also creating space for audience members to guide the discussion:

  • What happens when older and younger LGBTQ+ people come together in sustained dialogue?
  • In what ways has pleasure and pain manifested in our LGBTQ+ intergenerational dialogues?
  • What have been points of tension and harmony in our intergenerational dialogue work?
  • How do LGBTQ+ people change through the process of coming together in intergenerational dialogue?
