The San Mateo County Pride Center hosts a number of peer groups led by a combination of staff and community volunteers. A Peer Group is a space for members of a specific identity and/or community to come together, build friendships, and find social and emotional support in a private and affirming environment. Groups are run by community members and consist of a check-in and topic-based discussion or activity brought forward by different participants. These are not therapy groups, meaning facilitators are not licensed therapists; instead, they are community members providing supportive spaces for their peers to find connection.
The support groups that the Pride Center currently offers include LGBTQ+Youth (12-18), Grown Folks (18-30), Queers on the Autism Spectrum (18+), Polyamory Peer Power (18+), Gaymer’s Group (18+), Trans Social Group (18+), Gay Men’s Group (18+), CSM QT Chats, Sunshine Series (50+), and Coffee Break (50+).
