What we’re about:
You aren’t the only gay, bisexual or questioning man to ever marry or be involved with a woman! Come meet a wonderful group of men, in a nonjudgmental environment, who are dealing with the same issues as you. GAMMA is a peer support group for men who are gay, bisexual, questioning or don’t identify themselves as any of the above, but who are attracted to men; and who are, or who were, married or otherwise involved with a woman. We are a self-help group. Everything we do is done by volunteers who originally came to the group for support and have stayed on to help out and perhaps continue to receive support. GAMMA was started in Washington, DC in 1978, it is sponsored in Fort Myers by VisualityFlorida. www.visualityflorida.org
Men come to GAMMA for a variety of reasons:
Some are coming to terms with their situation and are trying to figure out what to do next.
Some are in crisis.
Some are doing well but need ongoing support because of the difficulty of being in this position.
Some come in order to give back to GAMMA and help those who are just now going through what they went through some time ago.
Some men meet each other through attending GAMMA meetings and have formed a partnership. That is great when it happens, but we are not a dating group. This is not a place to pick up guys.
GAMMA is a great place to hear other men’s stories and a safe place for you to share your stories when you are ready. No one will tell you what you should or should not do. It’s also a great way to make new friends.
