ABOUT GAY DADS SCOTLAND
We are a volunteer run support group run by gay dads for gay dads. Most of us are in, or have been in, marriages and we all have had children.
We understand the feeling of isolation, stress and guilt that gay dads often experience. Through our experiences, we know that it is often possible to work through the issues to achieve happy outcomes.
HOW WE HELP
There are many men is Scotland who feel very isolated as they try to deal with being a gay parent with no support. The group exists to help fill that gap.
In normal times (pre and post Covid) we usually gather in the cafe/bar area of our meeting venue from 8pm and move to a private meeting room around 8.15pm.
We introduce ourselves and give a bit of our background and everyone has the opportunity to raise issues and ask if others have had similar experiences. Individuals can share as much or as little as they wish, about their personal situation.
“Sometimes the hardest thing is just plucking up the courage to go to your first meeting. When you hear other people relate their experiences it stops you feeling so isolated. Empathy from others can be so reassuring."
So come along, make new friends and hear of others experiences and outcomes.
