Our community is open to women and non-binary people who identify as LGBTQIA+ or Queer. This provides a safe space for personal sharing, but not a specific conversational focus.
Struggling with ADHD can feel oppressive and shameful. We are striving for communal queer empowerment through self-acceptance and personal growth—Join us!
Between meetings, members of this group may choose to stay in touch through their own reserved “space” in ADDA Social. ADDA Social is a private, ADDA members-only social media platform. As part of the process for joining this group, you will be invited to their ADDA Social space. However, participation is not obligatory. To maintain a safe space for all members, we ask that you attend a group meeting and request access to ADDA Social from your group facilitator.
