Thank you for visiting 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 with children.

We understand the feeling of isolation, stress and guilt. Through experience, we know that it is often possible to work the issues to achieve a happy outcomes.

At our monthly support group meetings in Edinburgh (last Thursday of every month, except December)  gay dads from all over Scotland meet to discuss their situations and provide mutual support.

A note for gay dads in Glasgow or the West of Scotland?
Our GDS support group meetings are no longer held in Glasgow, as there were latterly insufficient numbers attending to give a balance of mutual support. However, please think about coming to an Edinburgh meeting as these are held in a venue close to the bus and railway stations and finish about 10pm, so that some visitors from the west can still have time to travel home. Our best advice, if you can't make it to a meeting, is to contact either:

Are you from the Highlands or Grampian?
We have members who sometimes travel from Aberdeen and Inverness to meeting in Edinburgh. For support locally contact Gay Mens Health
in  Aberdeen (01224 930355).  We are currently at the early stages of exploring the feasibility of having monthly support group meetings in Aberdeen. Please e-mail us to register your interest.

Elsewhere in Scotland LGBT Helpline Scotland Open 12noon - 9pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 0300 123 2523 provided information and emotional support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families, friends and supporters across Scotland.                   Weblink: www.lgbt-helpline-Scotland.org.uk
