I think I would be interested. I'm still not sure what these are, but I know I need to start healing if I want to get on with my life.

A Weekend day would be nice - around 3-4 PM EAST Coast US time. Not that I am gay though - I am one of those horrible, nasty, despicable persons that also like women.

Niels, you are more than welcome to join, but the group will focus on issues that may be specific to GBTQ survivors. Part of the goal of the circle is to open the floor to GBTQ members who feel the need to sensor themselves so they don't trigger straight members.

GBTQ is short for Gays, Bi, Trans and Queer. It is in general men that are attracted to other men.

It is important for them to have a group for themselves, where they can talk openly about their problems, since not all understand this, since many think it is strange to be able to be attracted to and love another man, especially if they have been abused by another man/ men.

I do not think you are stupid in any way for asking TJ. It is good that you ask if you are not sure what some things mean. I remember when I was younger and first read the word GLBT, that it might be some kind of sandwich - like a BLT - I also felt a little stupid when I realized what it meant. crazy

I would love to be a part of this group. A Saturday or Sunday late afternoon/early evening would work best for me. Honestly... best day would be Sunday. Weekdays are typically not good, but I could possibly squeeze in Tuesday evenings.

Because of my current living conditions I cannot do Mon, Wed, Thurs... and often times Fridays.

Dusty: It is a weekly get together in a separate part of the chatroom, where we can discuss Gay and BI issues without triggering other members or having the need to censor ourselves.

UBB Code is the markup language used by the Discussion Board software. It is similar to HTML. Like the code that makes things bold, the emoticons (smiley faces), quotes, etc.

Looks like we are getting interest in having the healing circle on Sunday. Let's see what others say...

M3,

I do hope the time you pick is good for me. I have so excited about this! I know a Healing Circle with this topic would be good for me. Please keep me informed as to the time you pick. Sunday's would be good for me.

Ken

I was WAY older than you are before I learned what this meant. Like Niels I thought it was a sandwich! smile We live and learn.

Much love,
Larry

Michael,

I should be available at pretty much any day or time. Until I hear back from grad school I have no commitments on my time to speak of.

Mike

Dusty,

If you do a quick reply, you have to know the UUB codes and type them in. To have prompts, click on the Reply button at the bottom of a post. It takes you to a different screen with smileys and format buttons.

Much love,

Michael

Will you be messaging us? or will you just be posting something here? Have you established a date yet? As long as it's a day that I can attend, I want to be a part of this HC.

Hey guys, it's looking like Sunday seems to be the best day so far for everyone. but MJ, Michael Joseph pointed out that he has an early morning commute on Mondays. Can we possibly consider a time that would not be too late for him?

Thanks
