Gay Dad's Support Group
Gay Dads of Birmingham exists to support and foster connections between gay dads.
We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 6:00 pm at the Magic City Wellness Center.
What do the meetings look like?
Each month, we gather at 6:00 for about ten minutes of casual conversation. We spend the remainder of our time together in a guided conversation over topics that are important to who we are as gay dads.
Some topics we’ve covered in past sessions include:
Navigating the Holidays as a Gay Dad
The lies gay dads tell themselves
A foot in two worlds; Integrating our lives as gay dads
Top 10 reasons to date a gay dad
Finding community as a gay dad
Getting real about parenting
We do have some ground rules for each meeting:
Confidentiality: what is said in the group stays in the group
Respect: We respect everyone, regardless of our differences
Keep an open mind: we're all learning
Presume good/Give each other the benefit of the doubt; he's doing the best he can with the information that he has
Who attends the monthly meetings?
All gay dads are welcome! Many of us have kids from a previous straight marriage, and there are gay dads who have children through adoption. We represent a wide cross-section of the Birmingham Metro area.
We would love for you to join our conversation!
