We have received a few requests to restart our coming-out discussion groups on a monthly basis - though with a preference to host the event on a weekend rather than a Wednesday night. We are joining with our partners at Queer Night Out to make this possible!
Finding a space to book on a weekend has proven challenging, so we thought we would start with a discussion over breakfast on a Sunday morning! We are starting quite early, but this should allow us to chat before the location gets too busy. We will be hosting the group on a monthly basis, on the 4th Sunday of the month (on a trial basis to start).
The group will be facilitated by one of our group organizers who also has over 15 years of experience facilitating peer-support groups within Waterloo Region's Rainbow community. While obviously participation in the group is not anonymous, we will be asking that all participants try to respect the confidentiality of individuals participating in the breakfast conversations.
Note that to better manage all RSVPs, we are asking individuals to get location details and RSVP via the Queer Night Out Waterloo Region MeetUp group. If you are not registered with MeetUp, contact us to let us know you are planning on attending and we will pass on the location details.
