GAY FATHERS OF TORONTO

We’ve been saying that since 1978 when a small group of gay fathers first met in the home of one of the GFT’s founders. Today, as was the case forty years ago, men finally coming to terms with the fact that they are gay have found a place to feel connected, supported, and can finally be who they were meant to be.

Our Purpose

At Gay Fathers of Toronto (GFT) we don’t tell you what to, instead it is a place to gain valuable information, and allow you to hear and share stories and experiences with other gay fathers. What is disclosed at meetings is strictly confidential. We’re here to support you in any positive and healthy path that works for you!

GFT has no religious agenda or affiliation, everyone is welcome. 

Meetings

Many of us arrived at our first meeting unsure of what to expect, but discovered a room of like-minded fathers.

It is a time to be real, to allow yourself to listen, share and ask questions in a supportive environment. It is also completely acceptable if you aren’t ready to share for the first little while, but would rather listen.

 

CAlendar of Events

Check out the calendar for upcoming events and click on the event listing for more information.

Our meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, we return to IN-PERSON on July 28th at 7:00pm (NOTE change in start time).  We will run ONE parallel meeting on-line on the 4th Thursday of each month, to ensure out of town, and those that are unable to attend can still attend virtual meetings.   

All meetings will be hosted by trained volunteer facilitators that are Gay Fathers.  The calendar dates list upcoming topics.  

Please contact GFT if you are new to GFT, and want to participate in our support group meetings.  If you are newly out, or need support as a gay father, we continue to be a support.  You may need us more than ever!
