ManKind Pride – the GBTQ Gateway to the ManKind Project

mkppride_GATEWAY-LOGO-revisedUpcoming GBTQ GatewayS New Warrior Training Adventure

Whether you identify as Gay, Bi, Trans, Questioning, Queer, or Curious, the New Warrior Training Adventure GBTQ Gateway provides a path to discovering and integrating your authentic masculine power. We welcome you!

WHAT IS IT: The New Warrior Training Adventure weekend is a real time hero’s journey, and the challenge of a lifetime for many men. This is not a retreat, a conference, or a workshop. We invite men to join us for a safe, cutting edge sex, alcohol, and drug free life-changing experience, 48 hours to look at your life without distractions.
Though all NWTA weekends are open to all men, some choose our GBTQ-focused NWTAs. The staff on this special weekend is comprised mostly of GBTQ men.

Note from the page Admin:

The primary goal of this site is to welcome Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer and Questioning who have some interest in the Mankind Project and New Warriors. My own 40-year experience in “coming out” and what I know from friends and mentors, has just taught me how important it is to listen and learn.

New Warriors and the Mankind Project organization are also very intent on being increasingly  inclusive and culturally diverse. I have taken “welcoming” and  “100% honest” to heart.  Your interest and input can help, please send your ideas.
