    PRIDE MONTH


    For the month of June, we are celebrating LGBTQ Pride Month with two modern classic movies that struck gold on Broadway! Showtime is Mondays at 12:30 PM.


    June 5th-  NO MOVIE


    June 12th– Billy Elliot (2000) - The life of an 11-year-old coal miner's son in Northern England, is forever changed one day when he stumbles upon a ballet class during his weekly boxing lesson. Before long, he finds himself in dance, demonstrating the kind of raw talent seldom seen by the class' exacting instructor, Mrs. Wilkinson. With a tart tongue and a never-ending stream of cigarettes in her hand, Mrs. Wilkinson's zest for teaching is revived when she sees Billy's potential. 


    June 19th– CLOSED


    June 26th– Kinky Boots ( 2005) -After his father's demise, Charlie Price inherits the family business, a shoe factory in Northampton, England. He is not interested in shoes, and the factory is in such dire financial straits that he must lay off 15 employees. However a fortuitous encounter with a transvestite cabaret singer inspires Charlie to save the factory from closure by producing erotic footwear, much to the chagrin of the workers.

  • Grief & Loss Group

    Thursday Jun 15, 2023 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

    Do you feel lonely and isolated with your thoughts and feelings of grief and loss? Do not worry, you are not alone. Grief and loss are feelings everyone experiences. The best way to help with these feelings is to not be alone. This March, South Buffalo Community Association is starting a “Grief and Loss Group”.


    This open group is unique because: 



    1. We support ALL forms of grief and loss with each other.

    2. Group participants run the group with the guidance of “group leaders”.

    3. Group leaders are like minded peers, not therapists or counselors.

    4. Everything said will be respected, honored, and confidential.

    5. Everyone is welcome and open to share as much or as little as you please.


    If you are interested, the group will meet the 3rd Thursday of every month at 5pm at the Tosh Collins Community Center (35 Cazenovia St, Buffalo, NY, 14220). Please contact Robert Brandon at 716-822-4532 ext. 102 if you are interested in attending the group or have any questions.
