Two Central Florida LGBT organizations are offering new groups to benefit the community they serve.

Older, Wiser, Learning (OWL), a program for older LGBTs run out of the GLBT Center, now offers a weekly “Lady Hoots,” a forum for women to discuss issues and topics they face in their daily lives.

“This group will touch on GLBT topics and will provide a space to educate ourselves and others,” says Ken Terrell, Seniors Programs Director at the Center.

Lady Hoots meets every Wednesday at 2 p.m. under the leadership of a facilitator.

Zebra Coalition, which serves local LGBT youth, is rolling out four new meet-ups for 2016. I Am are social groups for youth ages 18-24 that meet 5 p.m. Mondays at Zebra House. Kaleidoscope is a meet-up for transgender youth ages 13-17 that meets Mondays at 4 p.m. Skillz, which meets Tuesdays at 3 p.m., focuses on workplace skills and targets youth ages 18-24 years old. And finally, Music That Moves meets Tuesdays at 5 p.m., is for youth ages 13-24, and focuses on learning about and discussing music.
