- Widowhood in the absence of familial, professional, and social support for the LGBTQ+ community, resulting in complicated grief.
- The unique psychosocial challenges of grief and loss when not socially endorsed by mainstream society.
- The personal journey of the grief and loss healing process.
The group is open to the public, and there is no cost to join.
