Peer meetings are most men’s first contact with us, and have been a lifeline for many. No membership is required to participate in support meetings; you are welcome any evening we meet. Our meetings provide a safe, confidential, and welcoming forum for talking about our issues of gay fatherhood, including coming out, divorce, sexuality, and relationships with children, partners, and spouses (current or ex).
You are free to join in the discussion or just observe; whatever feels most comfortable. Occasionally, our meetings also include speakers on topics of interest for a portion of the meeting. After the meetings, many of us continue the conversation in a more casual setting at a local eatery.
We meet on the 2nd Monday of each month at Center on Halsted, 3656 N Halsted Street, Chicago from 7-9 pm. There is a voluntary donation at the door of $5 to help defray the cost of event planning, public relations and social activities.
