LGBT Support Group Starting

January 10, 2013

There is a new social support group being offered in London for LGBT2Q people, called Survive and Thrive. This social support group is offered to those who have experienced any type of violence or hate motivated behavior because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. The group will provide facilitated and trained supports to LGBT2Q survivors of hate crimes, hate incidents, violence, stigma and discrimination which will work to decrease the long term side effects of: 

  • marginalization
  • internalized homophobia
  • shame based trauma
  • PTSD
  • alienation
  • isolation
  • loneliness

The group will take place on Tuesdays evenings at 7:00 pm from February 12 - April 3, 2013 at the Middlesex-London Health Unit (50 King St., London). Survive and Thrive is offered by the HBT Working Group - a group which strives to address issues of Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia in our community.
