We routinely have two meetings a month. We have a meeting on the second Saturday of the month in Wilmington at:
First Unitarian Church
730 Halstead Road
Wilmington , DE 19803
Doors Open at 7:30 P.M. Meetings Begin at 8:00 P.M.
We also have a meeting in the Rehoboth area on the third Saturday of the Month. Currently we are searching for a new venue to host our meetings. Hopefully we will have this resolved soon.
What can I expect?
We seek to provide a safe, secure, and supportive environment to all, regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or religion. Our meetings provide a place for our members to share their experiences and concerns, and to obtain advice and encouragement. They are not a place for unaccompanied minors or mere curiosity seekers. We are not a dating service. The use of alcohol or drugs, sexual activity, and disruptive conduct are strictly prohibited at our functions.
How should I dress?
There is no dress code other than appropriate public attire. Facilities for changing clothes are available. No prior interview is required, and we will respect your desire for privacy. You may remain as anonymous as you wish. All we ask for is a name by which to call you. If someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, just reply, “I’m sorry, but I’d rather not say.” All personal information you provide is kept strictly confidential to board members. If you do not wish to receive e-mail reminders of meetings or US mail, we will honor your request.
What does it cost?
Annual dues help defray our expenses, such as meeting room and post office box rental, printing, website, and refreshments. Our dues are $35 per calendar year. You do not have to be a member to attend, although, after your first meeting, we do ask that you become a member, or donate $5 per meeting. Dues alone, however, are not enough to sustain the group. Everything we do is through the volunteer efforts of our members. We depend on the continued financial support of our members and friends to operate, but we will not turn anyone away for their financial hardship.
What if I’ve never been out?
For many of us, attending our first group meeting was our first step toward understanding and self-acceptance. Nevertheless, that first time out can produce some anxiety. We understand, and we try to make everyone feel at home, regardless of their experience in public. It’s entirely normal to feel a little nervous about meeting a new group of people. We’ve all experienced it. New friends are waiting to meet you, and there’s a new world of gender expression to explore. All of our chapter activities are completely voluntary. You will never be asked to participate beyond your own comfort level.
