Transit

May 12 - July 8, 2017

Charlottesville light artist Circe Strauss began her career in Hollywood, where she worked as a special effects technician for the Los Angeles movie industry in the 80s and early 90s. TRANSIT, her upcoming show in the Iridian Gallery, will be site-specific, light-infused installations, designed to be experienced as three distinct spaces. The work is both unsettling and energized by light sources.

Strauss took inspiration from personal feelings and thoughts as a transgender woman. "This work encompasses the intersection of religion, bad counseling and misinformation," as Strauss says, "experienced through travel on a crooked path from there to here."

First Monday of every month
7 - 8:30 PM in the Diversity Classroom, door #2

For several years a Women’s Coming Out Support Group has met at Diversity Richmond and has helped countless numbers of women who are dealing with the joys, and possible consequences of coming out. The group presently meets the first Monday of every month from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Diversity Classroom, entrance #2, 1407 Sherwood Avenue, 23220.

The meetings offer a safe place to share coming out journeys.  People attend who range from the newly-out to those who have been out for longer periods of time. Some women who participate have come out to a few individuals; some, none at all. Oftentimes attendees are either in heterosexual marriages or separated. Some have children and are seeking support and resources as they move through the coming out process. Attendance includes of a wide range of ages, from 18 to 65+. The ages of group attendees generally varies from the mid-twenties to mid-fifties.

Many of the attendees come regularly to offer support to those newly out. Most everyone who attends is seeking information on resources and social outlets to meet other women in a safe and non-threatening environment. The meetings are not designed to serve as therapy groups and all attendees are expected to respect the confidentiality of others.

Free parking is available on Sherwood Avenue or in the Diversity parking lot located on the east end of the building.

For more information, please contact the group co-facilitator, Loretta Mountcastle, at 804 291 8676 or email. The group is co-sponsored by Diversity Richmond and Metropolitan Community Church of Richmond. There is no charge to attend and the attire is casual.
