Making Memories

This Is The Way

5 Reasons Why Experiences Matter

Experiences create the fabric of a community, shaping its character, values, and connections. By fostering positive, inclusive, and engaging experiences, we can create a vibrant and thriving community that benefits all members in several significant ways:

Pride Rally
Freedom Rally
Crowning Miss Sanctuary 2023
Pride in the Park
Meet and Greet

Sense of Belonging

When individuals participate in activities or events together, they create a sense of unity and shared identity, reinforcing the feeling that they are part of something larger than themselves.


Inclusivity & Diversity

By offering a variety of activities and events that cater to various interests and identities, communities can ensure that all members feel valued and represented.


Identity Expression

Experiences provide platforms for individuals to express their identities and perspectives. This is particularly important for marginalized or minority groups, as it allows them to share their stories and contribute to the community's narrative.


Personal Growth & Empowerment

Community members can learn new skills, gain confidence, and discover hidden talents through participation in various events and initiatives.


Social Change

Experiences can be catalysts for social change and advocacy. Events centered around important issues can raise awareness, inspire action, and mobilize the community to work towards positive change.

How's It Work?

100% Community Lead Volunteerism

The Sanctuary consists of (9) voluntary Board Members and over 1,000 members. Without volunteers and community leaders to decide, develop, and implement experiences for the community, we'd never have been able to maintain our organization for the last three years.

The only way it works is that YOU join us.

That's right. YOU!

You've got ideas and opinions about things and events you'd like to see happen, don't you? Of course you do. We all do. Well, we invite you to join us so that we can make it happen.

Become a volunteer today and take on a lead role for an experience or initiative you believe in. 

Through mutual support, the lives of all LGBTQ+ individuals on the Treasure Coast will be enriched. Together, we will make our community an awesome place to live.

Queer & Present

Activism is about taking action to make a change socially or politically. We believe in being active within our community to make it clear that we are queer and present. Opportunities like volunteering at community food pantries, hosting clothing drives, and marching in rallies to voice our concerns are part of what you can expect from the Sanctuary.

We're Proud Of You

So Let's Celebrate!

An often neglected and yet vital part of all communities is the need to acknowledge individual, group, and organizational accomplishments and achievements. Beyond that, it's important to encourage positive role models to stand tall and become a beacon of inspiration to all of those who need guidance. We celebrate those who support LGBTQ+ freedom and human rights for all.

Explore With Us

Education Never Ends

We believe that natural human curiosity makes us all seekers of truth and knowledge, or in other words students of experience. Together we can explore ideas, concepts, theories, and more that will lead us to greater depths of understanding ourselves, each other, and the human condition.

Pure Magic

On With The Show

Entertainment is a defining pillar of experience in American culture and society. Throughout our history, whether in the form of a book, a play, a film, or a TV series, entertainment has pushed cultural boundaries and opened viewers' hearts and minds to alternative experiences and narratives lived by non-normative populations. We continue to embrace and showcase entertainment that reflects, portrays and represents queer life.

Just Show Up

Show Up & Meet Friends

We host social events and gatherings multiple times a month, making it as easy as showing up for anyone to meet new friends on the Treasure Coast. Our community is an extraordinary mix of individuals of all ages, cultures, ethnicities, levels of education, professions, religions, and sexualities. Come out, join us, and find your tribe.
