Lotus is a group led for and by the Asian LGBTQ+ in Central Florida. The group aims to forge community for all Asian LGBTQ+ communities by creating a space to get together to form friendships as we discuss a multitude of topics; some as heavy as the pressures of expectation to light topics like our favorite food.
This space was created because there is a lack of mental health spaces that are culturally cognizant of the Asian communities unique challenges.
In this group we:
-Welcome all genders and sexual orientations
-Welcome snacks, especially those that are unique to your culture.
-Accept all those who are out, in the closet, questioning, or just along for the ride.
-Are non-judgmental and uplifting
-Are not a dating service; we are friends who allow ourselves to be vulnerable
- Allow all individuals to have a chance to speak
- Keep things anonymous unless given consent to share
- Are mindful that everyone’s situations are unique and embrace differences with compassion
While we acknowledge that "asian" is an umbrella term encompassing many subcultures. We strive to be inclusive and welcoming of everyone while avoiding beliefs rooted in ethnicism, colorism, or classism. This group welcomes all those of all Asian backgrounds including, but not limited to, those that are biracial, adopted, or immigrants. Those of all sexual orientations, genders, ages, and disabilities as well as those of diverse neurological, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds are welcomed.
You do not need to share to attend. Your role as a supportive listener is equally as important.
