NATICK – Local not-for- profit organization OUT MetroWest will host a free event for LGBTQ families at Jam Time’s Natick location this month.
The event will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 11 and will provide a space for LGBTQ MetroWest residents to connect with one another in a family-friendly atmosphere. The address is 251 West Central Street in Natick.
“Many LGBTQ families are making MetroWest Boston their home,” states OUT MetroWest director of programs Courtney Allen. “Events like this are just one way we are fostering connections and building community among these families.”
OUT MetroWest is hosting this event with generous support from Avidia Bank, the Foundation for MetroWest, and the owners of Jam Time. Jam Time’s indoor play space is geared toward children ages zero to six, but children of all ages are welcome at the event. Peanut-free snacks will be provided, and all participants must wear socks.
OUT MetroWest runs three programs for LGBTQ middle and high school youth. Meetings are educational, social, and supportive and are held in Framingham, Newton, and Wellesley. The organization also provides workshops in the community to enhance understanding of gender identity and sexual orientation.
