Glad that you found us! I trust that the time that you spend here, in our company, will be helpful to you as things move forward.
LGBT folks are born as we are. We do not Become, but we do Discover. It is quite the revelation when we realize that the background thoughts that we have actually represent our true selves.
Isolation is a terrible thing that happens in our community. So, I will suggest some things that may help.
First, I suggest that you check our Member Directory. Click on Social in the menu and then Member Directory. From there you can search for other members in the southwest of the UK and elsewhere. Others may be able to provide some insights as to activities in your area.
Search for LGBT centers, even if they are not close. During the pandemic many organizations did support and social groups online. Many have continued the practice as it broadened their reach and eased scheduling and transportation issues for community members.
Also, please complete your Profile page. It provides background that helps others to understand your situation. It will always be readily available and can be updated at any time when something changes.
