This is a group that has been meeting in Hartford for over thirty years. We have a tradition of providing a safe confidential place for men who are or have been recently married or in a committed relationship with a woman, to discuss their feelings, worries and confusion around their sexual feelings or behavior toward men .
We provide a non-sexual environment which is judgement free, and has no outcomes in mind for anyone. This is not a "coming out" group, but just a safe place for gentlemen to discuss their journey with men in the same circumstances. This is a confidential discussion group not a therapy group.
If you are married or have been married or in a committed relationship with a woman, having an internal struggle with your sexual attraction to men which is contrary, perhaps, to the way you have viewed yourself and seems contrary to your values.
If you feel you are alone in the struggle and would like to be able to talk with other men about it;
If you find yourself doing things which are dangerous and could get you into trouble with your family, work place and community.;
then you might benefit from the Hartford group. This confidential group meets twice a month. Some men come regularly while some drop in from time to time when the going gets rough.
It takes one phone call to a group facilitator to sit down with him and explore whether you might benefit from coming to the group.
