Social / Informal Gathering:Home for Break Brunch!

Date: 
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

City:

Going home for winter break is different for everyone. For some of us it means a chance to reconnect with friends and family and eat some really great food. For others it can be tough! Whether it’s going back to a parent’s house and re-adjusting to living under their rules or experiencing a sense of isolation while back in a hometown that never really felt like home. Going home can be particularly tough for LGBTQ folks and people who have difficult relationships with their families.
