Tai Chi is a wonderful exercise and movement-based activity for those who have mobility or other physical restrictions. This low-impact activity is perfect for circulation, stretching, joint maintenance, and staying active.

This class is being taught by Maxine Strawder, a licensed Tai Chi instructor. However, she has requested that each class will only meet if at least four people sign up. Therefore, we ask that you please RSVP using this link. You will be notified if a class you have signed up for does not meet capacity requirements, and the class will be cancelled.

This event is part of a nationwide initiative by SAGE USA to create meaningful and long-lasting intergenerational connections within the LGBTQ+ Community. SAGE USA is an organization that recognizes that loneliness, isolation, and other forms of solitude are issues that many people in the LGBTQ+ community face, especially seniors. Their mission is to encourage events such as this across the country to bring together LGBTQ+ folks of all ages and walks of life over food and conversation.

The Senior Services Committee of OUTMemphis is hosting this potluck brunch in lieu of their November Seniors OUT For Coffee event in an effort to bring together an intergenerational group of LGBTQ+ folks. The hope is that people from all parts of the community will be able to come together over food and connect to create long-lasting connections that continue far after the brunch is over.

We invite community members of all ages to join us at this event. This is a potluck event, so please bring a food item of some sort if able. All ages are welcome, but any youth under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a guardian.
