Coming Out Course (6-week, booking essential)
LGBT Health and Wellbeing presents a unique 6-week course to explore the lifelong process of coming out. Coming out can involve coming out to yourself, family, friends, partners, employers and service providers. If you would like to spend some time creatively reflecting on how ‘out’ you are, whilst exploring other reasons why you might want to stay ‘in’, we would love you to be a part of this group. Over the course of 6 Wednesday evenings, discover new strategies to deal with your fears, meet others in similar situations and celebrate your triumphs in a confidential, relaxed, safe, LGBT affirmative space. Booking essential via (places limited) The information we ask for on this booking form is kept confidential to the group facilitators, and we use it to help us plan the group to ensure it addresses the issues people would find most helpful to explore. During the course, there is no expectation to share any information about yourself with others that doesn’t feel comfortable or safe for you to do so. We do expect the course to be popular, and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We will also operate a reserve list should any last minute places become available through cancellation. For any questions or further information on this course, please contact Alison Wren via [masked] or[masked]. ☑️ Wheelchair accessible (multi level building with lift) ☑️ Gender neutral accessible toilet. ☑️ Free, donations welcome.

What we're about

At LGBT Health and Wellbeing, we strive to improve the health and wellbeing of all LGBTQ+ people in Scotland. We are a community initiative (by and for the community) that provides a range of support services as well as a wide programme of social events in Edinburgh and Glasgow:

We offer specialist one to one support (including a national helpline and counselling) and a safe space for people to explore freely who they are and build the resilience, strength and confidence to be their authentic selves.

We offer social spaces that are inclusive of all and where people can come together to connect, share their experiences and support each others - so no one feels alone anymore.

We welcome the entire diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), non-binary, queer, intersex and asexual communities and allies. This includes those questioning their sexuality or/and gender identity and those who do not use labels for either.

Our services and activities are for all people aged 16+.

All our services and activities are delivered under a Safe Space Commitment actively upheld by our staff and volunteers. A Safe Space is somewhere everyone feels welcome, respected and comfortable with being who they are. This includes people who access our services, volunteers and staff.
