Friday Night Activities

DURING THE PANDEMIC, TRUE COLORS IS OFFERING WEEKLY VIRTUAL EVENTS FOR LGBTQ+ YOUTH.

Until we can get together in person again, True Colors will be hosting a weekly youth meet-ups via Zoom.  The links will be the same every week. All of our Zoom meetings will follow the same rules as our in-person gatherings, and will uphold our values of Respect, Inclusion, Safety, and Empowerment.

TUESDAY GAME NIGHT: 

Join us every Tuesday at 7 for a one-hour informal game night where youth can check in with True Colors and each other. We will play games like scattergories, heads up and other games.

Friday Night Activities, typically hosted in Hartford and Shelton, are moving online! Join us every Friday at 7 PM for a Zoom meeting based on our usual Friday Night schedule. The first Friday of the month is Game Night, where we will play games like Two Truths And A Lie or Would You Rather. The second Friday of the month is Media Night, where we will take turns sharing songs we love and discuss music and movies. The third is Drag Night, where we will chat with a guest speaker from our local drag community. The fourth is Craft Night, where we will share coloring pages and paper crafts while we talk.

True Colors offers weekly community activities that are designed to improve the overall quality of life for LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) youth by helping them to get connected with, and stay connected to, their communities.  All Friday Night Activities begin with an ice breaker and include free snacks! Best of all, they are always free and open to the public.

These activities are facilitated by True Colors staff, youth leadership team members and qualified community members who are able to donate their time and talents to the program;  All instructors are required to go through a DCF background check and to submit a Friday Night Activity Proposal Form, which can be obtained by emailing gsa@ourtruecolors.org. We will send you a form and answer any questions you might have at that time!

HARTFORD (will begin again, remotely in September)

Hartford Friday Night Activities take place every Friday night during the school year (September-June) from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the True Colors office at 30 Arbor Street Suite 201A in Hartford. These activities follow a rotating theme; the first Friday of the month is Community Conversation, the second Friday of the month is Movie Night, the third is Drag Night, and the fourth is Craft Night. When a month contains a fifth Friday, that Activity is a special Inter-generational Event.

SHELTON  (these activities are on hold until the pandemic ends)

Bridgeport Friday Night Activities take place on the first Friday of every month (including July and August) from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Hall Neighborhood House at Spooner House , 30 Todd Rd, Shelton, CT 06484.  Activities always start with a brief ice breaker, and often include a discussion of current events or another topic suggested by the group. Games (including pool, air hockey, and many board games) and pizza and salad are always available; some activity nights also include crafts or karaoke.  Unlike our Hartford Friday Nights, these activities take place YEAR ROUND!
