@ TRIBE Fitness

Enjoy YOGA and Stretching with Elizabeth Kovar at our new location: TRIBE Fitness. All classes are FREE to LGBTQ elders, their care providers and allies! Experience with yoga or stretching is not required. This class is designed to be approachable by all populations, regardless of fitness level.Moves in class are broken down in a slow and manageable manner. The intention of the class is to move a little and have a lot of fun–even if you don’t perform each move perfectly.

Write your story with New York Times bestselling memoir author Ingrid Ricks and then read your work-in-progress at our new Literary Open Mic event!

We hope to see you there!

Drop-Ins Welcome!

Tell your story

In April, GenPRIDE began working with members of our aging LGBTQ Community to develop and share their stories.

Community Conversations

Our Community Conversations are LGBTQIA+ safe spaces by and for our community. While others are welcome to participate, our communities’ voices will be prioritized and we hold a judgement free, safe space for all members. Members are free to speak about any topic, however we do pre-selected topics each week that serve as great ice breakers.

Our Mission

GenPRIDE empowers older LGBTQ+ adults to live with pride and dignity by promoting, connecting and developing innovative programs and services that enhance belonging and support, eliminate discrimination, and honor the lives of older members of our community. 

We are your community!
