Charlotte Friends Indeedis an informal supportgroup for gay men. We address a wide range of topics from
our vitality and contentment, , life stressers and sensitive issues for those whom depressions resonates in a positive and open forum.
The group derived from the premise that "friends in
need" are "friends in deed" and together we can encourage and support one another to "keep moving" forward.
As a peer support group in the LGBT community, our primary goal is to connect in healthy ways in a warm environment with other gay men on similar paths. Here we find an abundance of friendship, acceptance, empathy, and understanding. With much laughter and serious discussion, we begin to find ourselves "moving forward" through enlightened conversation and fellowship.
Professional therapists within the LGBT community help to provide a healthy perspective, assistance, guidance and availability. We respect the anonymity of the other gay men in the group to maintain a safe environment.
We meet at 7:00 pm on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month.
