November at SMYRC!

Hello there SMYRCers!

Halloween has come and gone and we’re all settling into the brisk chill that is autumn in Portland. Need something to do to keep the chill away? Want to come eat dinner and hang out with other rad queer youth? Head over to SMYRC Tuesdays through Saturdays!

Attached is November’s calender for you all, check out some of the great stuff we have going on!

Upcoming things to know about for November:

Sunday, November 13th is Communi-T: Portland’s Trans Resource Fair at the Q Center. Join for the kick-off event leading up to Trans Day of Remembrance! Meet service providers in a nonclinical setting, sit in on a workshop, participate in a variety of ongoing activities, and enjoy the tasty refreshment table. Communi-T is an interactive event to connect trans and genderqueer individuals to address health, legal, and social needs unique to the community.
