Examples include:

Have a cup of coffee with an elderly LGBTQ person and interview them about their life

Attend a political meeting

Volunteer at an event

Go to pride

Go to a queer dance party

Go to a drag show

Example 2: if you interview an elderly person, you could discuss the terrain of their life against the backdrop of changes for LGBTQ people.

Example 3: if you go to a drag show, you could discuss the importance of drag as a queer art form.
