What we're about
The Pacific Center for Human Growth in Berkeley has supported the LGBTQ community since 1973. We now offer a peer-led support group for Women Coming Out of Straight Marriage. Coming out at any age can be very difficult. For those already living an established heterosexual identity, possibly married or with children, the process becomes uniquely complicated. Some of the women who attend the group are just discovering and talking about who they might be. Others are newly divorced and trying to create community for themselves in their new identity. Most are somewhere in between. There is no pressure to act or to become anything; we simply offer a welcoming place to discuss and sort through these feelings without fear of judgment. Though the Pacific Center offers a full range of counseling services, this is not a therapy group; the facilitators are women who have been through this difficult process. The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month from 6:30-8:30PM. For more information, visit http://pacificcenter.org.
