EVERY FIRST FRIDAY of the month
Introducing our new social group: S.O.D.A. League:
The Sapphine, Oblique, & Dilly Action (& Activity) League!
Bi/Pan/MGA/fluid/mspec+ discussion & support group
Fluid Array Foundation is going to start having a discussion/support group starting this Wednesday from 6pm to 7pm at the Parsons Center for Health & Wellness in the Portland Park area of Phoenix (Roosevelt & Central) for anyone who would like to attend.
This is a great way to hear other people’s perception about their sexual orientation and speak with others about your own and the joys and frustrations that come with being bi or pan or multi gender attracted or fluid or any of the labels (& unlabeled!) we use within the fluid array. And it won’t always be about being all that.
Starting next month these will take place every first Wednesday of each month. As this group grows, we hope to expand to have support groups every Wednesday for women, men, & non-binary genders, exclusively.
Please be on time, respect the location, be mindful of others, and definitely show up.
Parking is in unreserved spaces on the east side of the building or on 1st street. If you take light rail, exit at the Central & Roosevelt stop and cross east over the rainbow crosswalk. Walk north to Portland St and the building is on the north side. Entrance is on the east side.

Niamhi Nyx was born in Phoenix and raised in Globe. Niamhi is a transgender female.

Niamhi has her BSA in multi media content creation for web development from DeVry University. She was vice-chair and founding member of the city of Globe’s Arts Advisory Committee from 2019-2021. She has been involved in non-profit and community work since her teen years. Being raised in a church, she initially grew up and became a youth pastor and worship leader. She is a professional artist in many mediums and media, a professional musician, as well as an advocate and activist for the trans and bi plus community. Her sexuality didn’t mature until after she started medical transition. Before her transition she identified as cis heterosexual. After starting her transition, she is now pan. Her partner also identifies as pan. Her goals within the community are to raise awareness of the discrimination and false stigma that are associated with belonging to LGBTQIA community. Also to help network as well as create and build resources that help those within the Trans, Non-Binary and Bi Plus communities.
Michael Millis educates, advocates for, and supports the LGBTQ community through his participation on the Board of Directors for Mulligan’s Manor, a nonprofit group home for at-risk LGBTQ youth, and his facilitation of a social/support group for gay/bi men on Meetup. Michael has also served as a Board member for the Hawaii chapter of PFLAG, and as a group facilitator in queer community centers in Denver, CO, and Madison, WI. A teacher, corporate trainer, and consultant by trade, Michael enjoys helping people find connection and common ground through sharing their stories.
Hailey Araza is a mental health counselor here in Phoenix. She specializes in trauma, adolescents, and mood disorders and she's a trained EMDR therapist. She's also a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ family and feels blessed to work with many individuals all over the attraction spectrums and with all different gender identities. She says, "Identifying as bisexual allows me the slightest window into the lives of all of us struggling in this heterosexual normative environment." She is passionate about working with individuals in finding their peace, healing their traumas, and learning how to identify and meet their own needs so that they can thrive. She also loves cooking, nights in with my partner, and dabbling in all kinds of art like painting, poetry, singing, playing piano, dancing, and many more! She is thrilled and so grateful to spend an evening with her sexually fluid peers!
This event is free, fun, and light rail accessible (it's just off the Roosevelt & Central stop. Cross west over the rainbow crosswalk!). It's in an LGBT district within downtown Phoenix: Portland Park!
Dress is casual, but you can wear what you like. After all, it's a celebration!
This event is for every bi, pan, fluid, mspec, and multi gender loving person! Make sure to share this event with all your bi+ friends and family!
