“Am I too old to come out?”
“Is there a place for me in the community?”
“I was in a heterosexual relationship and I just recently came out; is this the right place for me?”
Momentum is a free, six-week workshop for same-sex attracted men aged 27 years and above to socialise in a welcoming and confidential environment. It also offers an interactive and informative environment for the group to talk about issues relating to sexuality and well being. These include homophobia, coming out, self-esteem, community, HIV stigma and sexual health.
Some feedback from recent participants:
“I made a few new friends in the workshop. I have also realised that I should be happier with myself. I’m more comfortable with my sexuality now.”
“I gained a sense of community and acceptance with myself as a gay man. The workshop also helped to break down the stigma associated with HIV-positive people.”
“The sexual health session is really helpful to understand how to have safer sex in today’s world.”
