GRIOT (Gay Reunion In Our Time) Circle is a grassroots organization which seeks to address the needs of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) citizens, particularly people of color, though we are open to all races by providing programs and support systems designed to affirm their lives and encourage self-empowerment.
