Monday Morning Tea a weekly social group from 10-12pm on Zoom.

Every Monday night DAPS hosts the DAPS Bar Crawl from 6-9pm at the Madison Pub in Seattle, WA. We will switch bars every 3-4 months, we began at Pony.

Plugged In Tuesdays, are weekly activities that switch between movie and game nights. They always start at 7pm, but the end time depends on the activity. These are online events, movie night is done on Kast (this is a free platform) and game nights are done in our private discord server. Afterward we open Zoom for DAPS After Dark.

Trans-cend Mindfulness is a weekly mindfulness activity every Wednesday morning and evening from 11-11:45am and 6-645pm on Zoom.

Trans 201 is a weekly educational discussion group surrounding Trans specific topics, it is every Thursday from 7-9pm. DAPS believes that trans and gender diverse individuals are more than medical transition, an aspect not everyone chooses or has access to, and thus offer this group to help prepare and educate our community on other topics they may face while in the world. (Past topics include: coping skills, coming out at work, discrimination in healthcare, harm reduction, safety planning, gaslighting, labels, the history of Stonewall, ect.) These meetings are on Zoom. Afterward we keep Zoom open for DAPS After Dark.

This Month’s Trans 201 Topics:

Friday Evening Tea is the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Friday of the month from 7-9pm and is a social group, all Friday groups are hybrid (online/in-person), the in-person portion is done in Tacoma, WA at the Rainbow Center. Afterward we go out to eat at a local restaurant.

Trans-Mission is the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month and is a community group that often pitch hits for Trans 201, at least once a month we will have guest speakers from the community join us with a focus on intersectionality and major issues within our community. This group runs from 7-9pm. Afterward we go out to eat at a local restaurant.

After all evening groups we keep Zoom open, or open it if we were in another app, and have social “hour” called DAPS After Dark to allow a space to debrief, decompress, or just hangout. This also allows more time for those that may have come in late, or those that may not be able to make it during our group times.
