Gay men's group therapy is a safe space to practice vulnerability with other gay men. This group can offer valuable insight as to how others perceive you and help foster community and understanding among members. Group participants share common experiences that help foster bonds and participate in discussion topics, such as depression, isolation, shame, dating, sex, and many more.
