We are an informal, un-structured, un-led, un-supervised, social and support group for LGBT widow/ers who have lost an LGBT partner or spouse, seeking to share and grow with others of like experience. Traditional bereavement groups have been beneficial but there's also something so unique about our common experience in our time and our lives. We seem to gain strength from one another simply by sharing and hearing in a safe environment our stories which affirm our lives and loves.
By consensus, we have arrived at a few conventions: (i) What’s shared in the group stays in the group, (ii) initial shares are kept short, with a more unstructured discussion period to follow, and (iii) we refrain from cross-talk and interruption.
During COVID-19 restrictions, we meet on Zoom. Please mute while not speaking. Hope everyone stays safe and healthy till we meet in person again.
