SPECIAL MEETING NOTICE FOR OCTOBER 24

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT COMING OUT

Coming out is not an event but a process.

First of all…It involves coming out to yourself and developing a gay positive identity. Coming out to others (especially to wives and family members) requires careful preparation. And as you strive to create an honest relationship with your children there are important tips and steps to follow in disclosing that you’re gay.

Join us on Thursday, October 24th @ 8pm – Room 301 at the 519 Community Centre as Dr. Karen Kaffko, a long time consultant and friend of GFT conducts a very informative & valuable workshop about coming out to those special people in your life.

Dr. Karen Kaffko is a licensed, registered clinical psychologist and sees individuals, couples & families in therapy. She is a lecturer at York University in both the Department of Psychology and the School of Social Work. Dr. Kaffko has more than 25 years of clinical experience. She has specialized training in sexual issues and has many years experience counselling gay men individually and with their wives.

    Topic: Gay Grandparenting...the next step

    You may already be a grandparent, or maybe this is not even on your radar, but at some point all of us may become a gay grandparent. We will no longer just be the gay dad, but now the Gay Grandparent! Your children likely didn’t start out knowing you were gay, but now the grandchildren will from day one; does this change perspective? What does this mean? Let’s talk about the next generation, and where we fit!

    Topic: Pride 2.0 

    It has been 5 months since the Pride parade, how have you grown? Tonight is a check-in on your personal journey; what has been learned, and what can each of us learn from each other? This meeting looks at the unique perspective of showing pride as a gay parent. What successes can you share? What questions or bumps are still blocking all of your pride? Tonight is about being a proud gay parent, and maybe asking what is stopping me from going further in your showing this pride.
