2ND & 4TH WEDNESDAY / MONTH
Between Men is a group for men who are gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning their sexuality, and/or are into other guys. Non-binary folks who see themselves reflected in this space are absolutely welcome to attend. It is a safe space where we can talk openly and honestly.
We are holding both in-person meetings at the CommunityWise Resource Centre, and online meetings each month! Please see our Community Calendar to see which meetings will be held in-person.
We will be meeting in the CommunityWise Common Room, located on the main floor (please see below for COVID-19 restrictions). The CommunityWise building is located at 223 12 Ave SW. There is street parking outside the building. The closest LRT stations are 3rd Street and 1st Street stations.
Together we can work towards making sense of our sexualities and genders and the ways they impact us. Together we can realize our individual strengths and sort through the negative views of ourselves we've been picking up since we first realized we were different. When Between Men meets, we will have the chance to share our experiences and our struggles. We will be heard and feel important. We will help each other liberate ourselves from our pain. Besides all the serious stuff. we will socialize, get to meet new people and go on outings, having fun among supportive and safe company.
This meetup is intended as a space for peer support and casual connection. This is not a structured therapy group nor is it a dating space. If you are looking for further support, Outlink staff are available to meet with you one-on-one or in small groups by phone, text based messaging, or video call upon request. They can also help connect you to other counselling services.
Please note that this meeting is moderated by Outlink staff and volunteers who reserve the right to remove anyone from the group who is in violation of our Safer Space Ground Rules.
