Among Men, a peer-facilitated discussion group for/by men who love men, or think that they might, is committed to providing a safe, welcoming, and confidential space for men of all walks of life to foster individual and personal growth, through the promotion of healthy discussions in an environment that values diversity. Each week there will be an open discussion about a specific topic, however gatherings are informal and the discussions will vary and evolve from the topic. Each man is welcome to bring his own stories, thoughts and ideas to share. We are devoted to being an open and affirming space for everyone.

NB: For CLASS ASSIGNMENTS involving a visit to an "unfamiliar population" such as the Rainbow Center community, this discussion group (as well as all other discussion groups) would NOT be an appropriate venue to observe. All other Rainbow Center programs are open wide with the expectation that those attending due to class assignments are active participants in order to maintain respect, comfort, and integrity. Thanks!
