We are launching another psychoeducation series, this time on ‘Ageing forward for gay & bi men 40 years & older in Singapore’.
This facilitated group is free and specifically for:
- gay and bi men who are in their 40s, 50s, 60s and above,
- who want to learn about and support themselves and their community, and
- who are Singapore citizens or permanent residents.
The first session is on 30 Sep (Sat), 3-5:30pm at Pelangi Pride Centre. Registration is required via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About these sessions:
- This is not a presentation or a talk.
- This is not for counsellors, social workers and other mental health care professionals.
- This is not an “open” group. Once we start the group, it will not be open to additional participants.
This is a peer support group guided by our lived experiences and psychological research on aging. Topics include our identities, relationships, sexuality, spirituality, career, money, health—and more.
- This is a free programme with a total of 6 sessions.
- You need to attend session 1 in-person to continue participating in this group.
- Session 1 is on 30 September (Saturday), 3-5:30 pm at PPC.
- Sessions 2-6 are scheduled on the last Saturday of each month online 8:30-10 pm. (Session 6 will be in-person if possible.)
