Lotus meets regularly on the 2nd Friday of every month at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Lotus is a group led for and by the Asian LGBTQ+ in Central Florida (open to anyone 18+, anywhere). 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.

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.
