The LOFT is announcing that our Peer Support Groups will be happening online and over the phone via Zoom, through March 31st. The LOFT knows how important it is for our LGBTQ community to continue to safely connect with one another, especially in times of elevated stress and public concern. Although The LOFT's in-person groups and drop-in services are suspended through March 31st, The LOFT is announcing that group services will be made available online.

The LOFT's PROUDWST Me program is hosting a Virtual Celebration for Trans Day of Visibility! When: Tuesday, March 31st from 7:00pm-8:30pm
Trans Day of Visibility is a day that is dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments and victories of transgender, gender non-conforming & non-binary people while raising awareness of the work that is still needed to save trans lives.
The PROUDWST Me team is looking for TGNCNB community members and allies to share their stories during the virtual celebration!
You can discuss what being TGNCNB means to you, sharing your personal moments of empowerment, pride, and/or triumphs, or just talk about your experiences of being apart of the trans community! Your contributions can be in the form of song, art, spoken word, poetry or story telling. RSVP to Mia at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 27th if you would like participate in story telling.
We have been closely monitoring and adhering to the recommendations made by the CDC, New York State Department of Health, and the Westchester County Department of Health. Please know, this decision was made after careful deliberation by our staff and board and is intended to protect our folks, particularly our most vulnerable community members.
We are working on alternative ways to meet the community's needs, such as virtual group meetings and friendly check-in calls. The staff is available by phone and email throughout this time.
If you feel isolated or feel like you need someone to talk to, call The LOFT at 914-948-2932. If you reach a voicemail, one of us will call you back as soon as we can. LOFT Staff can also be reached via email for support. All staff contact information can be found here.
