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.

**Hear Greg Gondron talk about the GBTQ Gateway!

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.

HOW LONG IS IT: Exact times vary, but 5 PM FRIDAY until 5 PM SUNDAY is usual.

WHAT YOU WILL GET: You’ll get more than you’re willing to hope for: purpose, passion, vibrancy, joy, healing, connection to self, new energy, clarity, power, freedom, understanding, brotherhood, and trust. Over 59,000 men have now taken this journey, and every man’s experience has been unique.

WHAT DOES IT COST: Prices vary according to location and the average cost is $650 in the US. This includes all accommodations, meals and materials. Financial assistance and payment plans are often available.

WHO RUNS IT: The ManKind Project International. We are a 35 year-old nonprofit organization with a proven track-record of helping men grow, flourish, and build community. We want your life to be ALL that you want it to be. We want you to be healthy in mind, body and spirit, to feel valuable and powerful as a mature man in the world. We want a culture that is safe, supportive and vibrant for our partners, families, chosen families, kids and grand-kids. If you want that too, then take this to heart – this training will have a profound impact on you and all those you care about.

What’s your next step?

Background information

A lot of work and love went into creating this web site that has its prime goal of welcoming 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.


One action we’ve taken has been to add “gateway”  training adventures to the New Warrior Training Adventures that have been conducted for thirty years over most of the world.

I have taken “welcoming” and  “100% honest” to heart.  Your interest and input can help, please send your ideas.
