The Trailblazers is a program at Stonewall Columbus for LGBTQA Adults ages 50+ that was created through a generous gift from The Legacy Fund. Trailblazer events include seminars, local shows, computer workshops, and Social Outings.
Each year Stonewall hosts a series of seminars and a series on eldercare starts this fall. Topics include understanding LGBTQA adult’s needs, building the LGBTQA caregiver’s toolbox, building support networks and preventing caregiver burnout, and legal issues facing LGBTQA adults.
Stonewall Columbus also conducts a free computer workshop for Trailblazers designed to make participants more comfortable with computers and help them stay connected to the community. Workshops are fun and have a small class size so that everyone can get to know each other and get plenty of attention from the instructors.
And of course we have our incredibly popular SocialOutings! Once a month Trailblazers meet at the Center on High and get a ride to the theater or a concert, and then finish up at Union Cafe for discounted food and drinks.
The Stonewall Columbus Pride Festival has a special Trailblazer Lounge where you can get out of the sun, relax, and even use separate estrooms. Ask about getting a Trailblazer wristband so you can get in! This year has been busy for the Trailblazers, and there is still much more to come, so join us!
