Coffee at the Center

D.C.'S LGBT community center adds weekly coffee social for seniors to the lineup

The DC Center, the city’s LGBT community center, has kicked off a ”coffee drop-in hour” for older LGBT adults on Mondays. The coffee hour is sponsored by Alpha People’s Drugs (formerly Alpha Drugs), a pharmacy specializing in HIV, hepatitis C and transplant medications, located at 1638 R St. NW.

Joel Colon, who is coordinating the drop-ins, says the coffee klatches are intended to provide a space for older LGBT adults to talk and bond.

Colon adds that the relaxed atmosphere provides an opportunity for older LGBT area residents to socialize without having to rally around a particular political agenda or cause.

The DC Center’s older adult coffee drop-in hours are most Mondays, from 10 a.m. to noon, at 1318 U St. NW. For more information, contact The DC Center at 202-682-2245 or visit thedccenter.org.
