Grey & Golden

Grey and Golden is a facilitated safe space for GBQT2S and 35+ men who have sex with men to talk, listen, and share their experiences of conscious aging with other gay men. Discussion topics will include aging, finances, coming “out”, grief, loneliness and other lifestyle issues.

The group will meet periodically on the third Thursday of the month starting in February 2020. You can find a calendar of upcoming Grey & Golden meetings here.
