Poly's Lower School is hosting two LGBTQ+ gatherings at Poly. The first is for parents/guardians, faculty, and staff who identify as members of the community, as well as parents of students who identify as LGBTQ+. We will gather in the Lower School on Friday, April 26, from 6:30 to 8 PM. (Please note that, due to a conflict in the Poly calendar, this is a change in date from a message that went previously.) We’ll have snacks and beverages and much opportunity to chat and get to know one another.
On Saturday, May 11, we are hosting another event, again at the Lower School, for LGBTQ+ parents and their children as well as LGBTQ+ faculty and staff. This will be held from 2 to 4 PM.
Both events are for the entire LGBTQ+community in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools. We hope that these opportunities foster a sense of community and help the children - and us! - affirm our identities in an affinity setting. This is indeed one of the goals of HUGs LGBTQ+, which formed in the fall of 2018. HUGs LGBTQ+ is looking forward to hosting additional events, serving as a resource, etc.
