What happens at a typical meeting?

Our meetings usually last about two hours. A part of that time is devoted to a presentation or focused discussion. But much of the meeting is reserved for people to talk about their problems and concerns, or to seek help in dealing with a difficult situation. We talk, we laugh, sometimes we cry, but hopefully most feel better when they leave than when they arrived.

Who attends these meetings?

All kinds of people, which is what makes our meetings interesting! You'll meet mothers, fathers, seniors, young people, straight people, gays, lesbians, transgender people, etc. Some are seasoned members, some are new, but all are dealing in some way with the issues related to homosexuality in todays society. One thing is certain; all the members are either seeking help or are willing to help.

Am I likely to meet someone I know?

In a word, no. There are a large number of people in the Tacoma area. Our attendance usually ranges between 10 and 50. The chances of meeting someone you know are small. Besides, even if you did run into an acquaintance, remember that they would be there for the same reason as you. Everyone at the meetings knows confidentiality is essential.
