Men's Social Group

Thursday, 14 Nov 2019 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Location: 343 ATLAS AVE SE, GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan

Casual, supportive social group for GBTQ men. 

GR Pride Center’s, GBTQ Men’s Social Group has three main goals. To create a welcoming atmosphere free of judgement that inspires open and honest conversation. Forge new friendships outside of bars, clubs, phone apps and the “dating scene.” And, provide a diverse array of perspective by welcoming all gay/bi/trans/questioning men ages 18 to 118.

The social group is casual and follows a loose format, starting with the question, “Did anyone come here today with the specific intention to ask a question or share an experience with the group?” If no one wishes to share at first, we will “warm up” by doing a round of get-to-know-you questions such as: “If you could be born in a different era which would you choose and why?” or “What are you afraid of?” Just to get the group more comfortable with speaking. Group members can choose to answer the question, skip, or ask the group a question that they have made up on their own. This pattern will continue until a topic “sticks” so feel free to interject if you find a topic interesting or want to elaborate.

This group is open to any person who identifies as male.
