What guys are saying


“Personal growth is an ongoing process. Calan, Michael, and Matt have brought their talents to assist people along their journeys. I've had opportunities to share my journey and be vulnerable with all of the leaders. Without a doubt and with their unique gifts, they have helped transform lives for the better.”


“As an African-American gay man, I didn’t know my identity. I was very codependent and had very strong people-pleasing traits that were unattractive. Before finding Matt, Michael and Calan I was not thriving in the way I wanted and they have been a breath of fresh air. I was hungry for authentic leadership and conscious gay men that were DOING the work! Gay men that were vulnerable and most importantly, that they were trustworthy! In just eight months they have made a huge impact on my life. My relationships are happier and unconditionally thriving, and most importantly, I’m not afraid to be myself.”


“Before working with the Matt, Calan and Michael I was struggling with maintaining relationships with myself and others. Now my relationship with others and myself have changed due to the Gay Men's Brotherhood. If you are on the fence about starting, you have nothing to lose. I can assure you that the people in this group are amazing people and are here to support you.”
