This group is for gay, bi, trans, and pansexual identifying singles and couples. Many gay men get stuck in a rut and are discouraged about themselves, and their relationships and the gay dating scenes well. But, we aren't gathering to just moan how tough it is out there. Men joining this group are guys who want to move on beyond the pity party, get some insight and support, and have fun along the way. This is for guys who authentically recognize that though there are significant challenges "out there" in the gay relationship world, the real change has to happen "in there"--in ourselves. We gather as men who want to be thriving, not just surviving. We learn how to do that through book discussions and some practical exercises to build a better relationship with ourselves and with others while having fun outings along the way too! So, this will be part book discussion, part social outing/fun things to do/being "out" more events.
We presently meet online until the Covid-19 diaster is behind us. When we do resume locally we will keep a video chat component so you can join in anywhere you are.
What we are not:
*a group to come find hookups.
*a therapy group run by a therapist or life coach. Expectations are that you can participate without disruptive triggers and can come dressed and groomed appropriately for public group discussion.
*a place to use in place of therapist.
*a place to solicit or push a product.
What we are doing is taking the spirit of this organization called Gay Man Thriving. They have a free Facebook page and life coach movement all their own. They are not sanctioning this group nor are we a part of them in any way, nor do we necessarily support every action or thought that comes from them. What we are in support of and seeking to imitate here is that of moving from surviving to thriving, moving from treating men as a piece of meat to actually loving and primarily building a healthier relationship with self and others by owning that the change begins within oneself. Our primary focus is self-love. Those who join us are hungry to explore what that looks like and have some fun and laughs too.
