Queer and Trans Inclusive Yoga, an OUTreach yoga class, different from your studio yoga class. This class is for queer and trans individuals who cannot find comfort in a studio to have a comfortable place to practice yoga for any reason that brings them to their mats. Includes poses that are mindful of dysphoria/vulnerable exposure, inclusive language, and sensitivity to trauma. Meeting for one hour for adults and one hour for teens to disconnect from society and connect in with peers and staff. Open to the community. Cost is $5 per session payable at the door. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apple Tree Project
Sponsored by Interfaith Ministries of Denton, DUUF folks provide back-to-school clothes and supplies to less fortunate community members each summer.
Transgender Awareness Panel
The Transgender Awareness Panel was held in 2018 and 2019 and was sponsored by DUUF. Panelists from diverse backgrounds offered their unique and beautiful perspectives on what it means to be trans in Texas and suggested ways that the community can rise up to support equality in the face of disinformation and fear. DUUF member Amber Briggle moderated both events which were attended by more than 50 people and questions were taken from the audience. The programs were free and open to the public.
