About this event

Lotus meets every 2nd Wednesday of the month!

Email PSSLotus@gmail.com to receive a link to join!

Lotus aims to forge community for all Asian LGBTQ+ communities by creating a space to get together to form friendships as we discuss a multitude of topics; some as heavy as the pressures of expectation to light topics like our favorite food. On the 4th Friday of the month, we come together to enjoy virtual game nights and social fun activities! Register here.

While we acknowledge that "Asian" is an umbrella term encompassing many subcultures. We strive to be inclusive and welcoming of everyone while avoiding beliefs rooted in ethnicism, colorism, or classism. This group welcomes all those of all Asian backgrounds including, but not limited to, those that are biracial, adopted, or immigrants. Those of all sexual orientations, genders, ages, and disabilities as well as those of diverse neurological, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds are welcomed.

This space was created because there is a lack of mental health spaces that are culturally cognizant of the Asian community's unique challenges.

In this group we:

Welcome all genders and sexual orientations

Welcome snacks, especially those that are unique to your culture.

Accept all those who are out, in the closet, questioning, or just along for the ride.

Are non-judgmental and uplifting

Are not a dating service; we are friends who allow ourselves to be vulnerable

Allow all individuals to have a chance to speak

Keep things anonymous unless given consent to share

Are mindful that everyone’s situations are unique and embrace differences with compassion

You do not need to share to attend. Your role as a supportive listener is equally as important.
