“Down in Queerstory” By Suhair Siraj

Community Stories

70 years later, she’s getting her chance.

We want to introduce you to Cesca. Cesca came out as Trans right before the pandemic hit. Unfortunately, what followed suit was a divorce and then a restraining order from her spouse and kids… the family she had raised for more than 35 years. In an already challenging year for everyone across the globe, Cesca had additionally lost her marriage, family, house, and the will to live.

She came to us for support as she battled with suicidal ideations and even an attempt that landed her in the emergency room. She knew that despite things falling apart she could count on us – her chosen family here at the Center. After all, she came out to us first. And for the first time ever, she realized how important it was to be her true self.

“The Center saved my life more than once.. they are what’s keeping me going.”

Cesca has blossomed into a brave and strong woman with a renewed passion for life. 70 years later, she’s getting her chance. Cesca is a support group regular and hopes to be a facilitator for the very groups she attends like Golden Grounds (for older adults), Coming Out, and Trans. A retired attorney, she one day will renew her license and advocate for Trans rights, even joining as a volunteer for our legal clinic.

Our seniors are more likely to live alone, experience isolation and loneliness, and live in poverty. We’re here to stop end that. Our community resources and support groups are one of many services we provide to care for our older adults. We partner with a network of affirming service providers to increase access to care for our community members in need. We also provide a series of support groups that allow for discussion, friendship, socializing, networking, and we’re not shy to add new ones when requested!

"Felix, Ash, and Bryn were unsheltered for over three months here in Sacramento... 2,328 miles away from where they were originally from. These best friends fled Tennessee to pursue a new chapter in California - and what better place than its capital? They believed this recent change would bring more opportunities and an affirming place they could call home... "
