More Time for Support
That’s why, two or three times a year, we devote the whole meeting to support. The extra time allows us to go more deeply into situations, issues, and feelings that are challenging. This meeting is one of those sessions.
We hope you’ll all come with your trials and your successes, your fears and your victories, your hopes and dreads. When it comes to issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, we’re all works in progress, growing through tolerance to acceptance to celebration one step at a time.
Your story will enrich our groups and help all of us to grow.
