Weekend Exploration Workshop

September 13, 2013 - September 15, 2013

“If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got

Take control of ‘what happens next’ by breaking through the monotonous cycle that have left you apprehensive of meaningful relationship, disheartened by the scene, or simply feeling suffocated by the perception of a ‘community’ that you aren’t sure even exists.

Ade Adeniji & Darren Brady bring their wealth of experience, and knowledge to help you better understand the complexities, joys, challenges, frustrations, thoughts and emotions involved with being a gay man in today’s world.

The Weekend Exploration Workshops have been specifically created for today’s gay man, with key learnings inspired by ’The Velvet Rage – overcoming the pain of growing up gay in a straight man’s world‘, by Alan Downs.
