A support group for women who have become aware of a same-sex attraction or who are questioning their sexual orientation later in life. We meet once a month to share common experiences and offer each other emotional support and practical advice in a safe, confidential and judgment-free zone. We welcome women who have recently become aware of a same sex attraction; are questioning their sexual orientation later in life; are questioning their position within a marriage or their relationship with a husband; or are struggling with the challenges of coming out later in life. We welcome women at all stages of the process, who are either on the cusp of self-discovery and are looking for some support or guidance, or have travelled the path for some time and are able to offer help and advice to others. Please contact Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to join us at our next meeting.

Raymond Rigoglioso brings his Gay Men of Wisdom Discussion Group, which he runs at the LGBT Center in New York City, to the TCC. This discussion group fosters personal growth and exploration about the ways in which gay men serve humanity and help it evolve. The group is based on the Gay Men of Wisdom vision: that gay men’s attributes and ways of being, for which we experience discrimination, are the very gifts we bring to the world and our most important contribution.
