In our community, there are many women who feel vulnerable and that they have much to lose if they come out: a job, housing, children, or family. This group is here to provide mutual support and unconditional love no matter where your journey is leading you. This support group is a non-judgmental space – there is no pressure to change your situation unless you want to.
This group might be for you if you:
- Are a woman in the closet
- Are married or divorced
- Have children
- Are afraid of what you might lose if you come out
This is a confidential group. Respect for each others’ desire to remain confidential or anonymous is of the utmost importance.
This group will meet in person in Crown Heights, but participants living in other locations are welcome.
