LGBT Ireland offers the following groups every month:

1. First Out for Gay and Bisexual Men is for adult men of all ages who are at the early stages of coming out as gay or bisexual and are struggling with this or men who would just like to connect with their peers who are at a similar stage. The group is facilitated by experienced helpline volunteers but there are no agendas and is member focused. Due to COVID restrictions, the group now meets online from 19.00-21.00 the first Thursday of every month. Contact the group facilitator on 085 876 4519 or email: peersupport@lgbt.ie to register.

2. First Out for LGB Women is a peer support group for women, of all ages, who are questioning their sexuality or considering ‘coming out’. Due to COVID restrictions, the group now meets online from 19.30 - 21.30 on the first Thursday of each month.

3. Married Women is a peer support group for women who are, or have been, in an opposite sex marriage or long term relationship. The peer support group offers a safe space for women to talk openly and confidentially with other women about similar experiences. The group meets on the last Tuesday of each month online due to COVID restrictions. Contact: peersupport@lgbt.ie to register or get more information.

4. Straight Spouses is a peer support group for people who are, or have been, married or in a long term heterosexual relationship with someone who has disclosed that they now identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity. The peer support group offers a safe space for individuals to talk openly and confidentially with other individuals who are going through a similar experience. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm, online due to COVID restrictions and is facilitated by experienced helpline volunteers but there are no agendas and is member focused.
