Wherever you are in your journey, you’re not alone: Other Dads are experiencing the same issues and worries, some have struggled along to a brighter place.
The group is inclusive and respectful. GayDads attending are out, in and every stage between; single, partnered, married, civilly-unioned, divorced etc.; Some guys had kids with an ex-wife, some are parents by surrogacy. We are every kind of 'rainbow family.'
We find that meeting up now and again is fun and helps.
Wherever you're at, at London Gay Dads Meetups there’s always a warm welcome.
This fun meet-up will be full of smiles, laughs and good nature. Guys who have children, chatting over a drink. We know the struggles of being gay and a father. We make it work, for us it is normal.
It’s a relaxing, fun, positive, encouraging meet. First-time members looked out for and warmly welcomed. We don't do cliquey. This meetup is about helping GayDads be connected with each other; inevitably Dads share experiences/ideas/resources that help each other, but this isn't done "formally" - no 'talks' etc., but it happens every time, often a lot, guess that's what makes meeting up in person special.
People come along as singles and couples, younger, older, out, not out, still married to a woman, divorced, trans. Women are welcome too: Basically everyone from every imaginable background can take part. Some non-Dads & not-Dads-quite-yet come too. And every racial group and faith/no faith background has come and been warmly included. ** _ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE_ Is Welcome.**
Plenty of blokes drink non-alcoholic bevvies. No pressure, no judgements. Occasionally, some of the guys decide to go on for dinner after.
If you RSVP "Yes," and especially if you have a pic on your profile, one of the leaders will know to be on the lookout to welcome you. Usually on the evening one of the hosting leaders sends their mobile # to everyone signed up, just in case anyone has difficulty finding the group.
No charge for this meetup, or any London Gay Dads Meetup, not ever.
This will also be the second anniversary of the groups first meet and therefore we'll be going out for a meal to celebrate as from around 21:00 - 21:30. Everyone is welcome to join in the merry making and make sure the 2019 heralds a great year for a great bunch of guys.
Look forward to seeing & having a laugh with you!
