We offer support to anyone who has had someone in their life (parents, children, friends, etc.) ‘come out’ or disclose that they are LGBTQ+.
It can be an overwhelming or confusing time when we have been told that someone close to us comes out as LGBTQ+.
This support group is a place where individuals going through similar experiences can meet and discuss their feelings and/or process in an environment that is safe and free of judgement.
It can help to talk to others who are going through similar challenges and reduce the feelings of loneliness that one may feel in this process.
Who are our members
Children, parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, colleagues and friends of individuals who have "come out" and they are processing the new information, the new feelings and the challenges (emotional and practical) of the new relationship between them.
What we do
There will be 2 support group meetings, each of two hours.
We will talk about:
Bring only your concerns, questions, open minds and warm hearts!

What other members said
"I've recently joined a new Support Group. I didn't know what to expect but each time I have been, I've noticed that there is a healing 'energy' in the room. People share their stories and situations in a safe way. It's a small intimate group, it feels good to have a window to share with others travelling a similarly difficult journey. Vassia who facilitates holds the group in a very talented way. She gives home exercises that are really causing me to be brave and deepen the process of acceptance."
