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!
