What we’re about
Welcome to "Talk It Out" l Gay, Bi & Trans Men Discussion + Social Group.
The focus of this group is to provide a bi-weekly 2.5 hour long session specific for gay, bi-sexual, and trans men, to come together and have genuine and honest emotional check ins with each other, aimed at disrupting feelings of isolation, loneliness and limited sense of community. The goal is to provide a positive, happy, joyful, safe and confidential space where various topics will be explored, mutual support will be given, friendships will be formed, and life challenges will be discussed.
*Men who have not yet fully come out are welcome. Any concerns can be discussed with the host(s) ahead of any upcoming group. Our goal is to make sure you are comfortable*.
