TCC is a safe and welcoming place where the LGBTQI community of all ages and cultures in the Fairfield County area of CT can feel safe and supported. TCC's calendar is full of events, meeting and support groups, and educational programming. I am a volunteer for the center, serving on the board of directors since 2008 and love being involved and giving back to a place which has done so much over the years for the LGBTQI community, most importantly our youth via our Outspoken group. TCC is a non-profit, running mainly on member donations. If you're in the area, please become a member now so that the center's doors can remain open. Check us out and join today!
The TCC is a labor of love. Some 18 years ago it was founded by a group of dedicated people who wanted to create a place where the LGBT community could meet and support one another. We stand strong today in that endeavor. I have been a member and on the board of directors for 6 or 7 years. The TCC has provided a rich experience in my life: making friends and making a difference to the lives of others in the community. Each time I go there I see people who are finding each other, sharing experiences, growing together. I have seen transgender people find their true expression and the courage to live their lives authentically; young people find peer support; all types finding spiritual calm; people having fun together, celebrating each other. Fairfield County, CT without the TCC would be like NYC without Central Park! Where else would we find a breath of fresh air?? I give the TCC 5 stars because I see how the board pours its heart and soul into the organization. I see the effect it has on our community, but maybe more importantly, I see how much more effect it could have with a broader membership base and better funding!
The Triangle Community Center ("TCC") has really made a big impact on my life. So much so that I asked to join the board so that I could contribute to the community. TCC hosts support groups such as couples discussion, transmasculine group, AA, a youth group, a 20-something group and tons more. TCC also runs several social groups such as a bowling league, book clubs, women's socials and more. Recently TCC held a queer prom for local teens who needed a safe place to eat, dance and laugh together. I was present as a chaperon and I had a great time! We are constantly trying to answer the needs of the community and to keep the sense of community strong and alive in Fairfield County, CT. The newly renovated space and free WIFI access has really made TCC an ideal and safe place for the LGBTQI community to come hang out, meet people, laugh and love. I'm proud to serve on the board.
