WAH hosts Coming Out Later in Life Support Group

  • Nov 7, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

There have been numerous requests for a support group for women who are curious and serious about coming out. WAHMeetup is proud to host a support group for those coming out later in life.
As noted by our friend, Amy:
"This is a long process during which I experienced feelings of failure and often thought that it is easier just pretending to be straight. By this I mean that whilst I was 'straight' I had quite a few friends, both female and male, and was never short of company. During the 'transfer' to a lesbian identity I have been lonely because I want lesbian friends and at some point a relationship and I don't know many lesbians or how to really meet them. I find it a struggle to be between the straight/lesbian identities, especially when you know you are lesbian and you want that identity!"
This meeting will be held in the smaller, private conference room inside the restaurant and we ask for confidentiality as this is a support group with speakers and mentors. Please pass the word to those friends you know who may be interested in attending. If you are interested in mentoring please contact Chris at [masked]. Menu/cash bar items will be available during the meeting for those interested.

    Hi everyone, I am looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing my experiences with coming out as a very late bloomer! It makes a difficult thing much harder. I hope to be helped and to be of help. Chris, I am very happy that you are doing this. I am hoping that your skills with organizing groups of people will become something that will be richly rewarding in all the ways you need!

    Do we have enough toaster to go around if this takes off?? LOL!!

    This is hard very difficult awaking, I'd like to call it.
    Though I came out years ago in my mid 20's, times have changed
    and there should be a support group to help for those who want to
    come out to Family and friends.
    God Bless, this is a Great idea. Hats off Ladies!!!

    I am so glad to be of assistance for hosting this important support group, as many do not know where to turn for support during such a lifechanging transition. Our community is very supportive and we hope this group will help those in need.
