Hi all,

I'm new but jumping in with both feet. Are any of you going to the Alta weekend? Would be nice to know that other gay guys will be there! I'm thrilled to find y'all as I think that I can learn a lot from our shared experience of being gay. I've been a little resistant to going to general PTSD or survivor groups because I just have a feeling that being gay and male complicates things and brings up some unique issues.

Hopefully I won't be the only gay guy at Alta, but even if so, there should be plenty to learn from a male focused group experience.

Hi Darin,

I'm Michael (newbie to site). Sorry I won't meet you out at Alta, but I was wondering the same thing about the Hope Springs weekend in Ohio (I'll be there). Anyone going to either weekend of recovery?

PS: I agree. There are different issues for gay victims. For me, identifying the abuse as what being gay means, I completely tried to deny that part of myself until I began to be able to sort the two out. Having other gay men at the weekend will certainly be a plus.

I will see you there, and look forward to meeting you.


Money talks, but all it tells me is goodbye.

If I could meet myself as a boy...
