The number one request I get from women coming out later in life is “where can I find community and support?” A year ago, I started the Later in Life Lesbian Support Group to address this need. I choose Google Groups as the platform mainly for the anonymity factor, which is a big deal for those questioning their sexuality and needing support.
While I’ve had great response to the Google support group, the platform is really lacking in ease of communication.
So, I made the decision to move the Later in Life Lesbian Support Group from Google Groups to Facebook for these reasons:
- Facebook is the number one social networking platform. It’s where everyone is connecting these days!
- With the option of a “secret” Facebook group, anonymity is protected. The group will not show up in any internet search, and it definitely will not show up on anyone’s Facebook news feed.
- Facebook makes it easy to share resources, articles, photos, and anything else that might be helpful for women coming out later in life.
Join us in the new group! It’s a secret group, so if you want to join, you need to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell me why you want to join the group so that I can make sure you’ll be a good fit.
I look forward to growing our support network and I hope to see you on our new group soon!
