Home Mental Health Support Groups. The Forty Plus group includes, but is not limited to individuals who identify as lesbian, bisexual, or transgender women who are at least 40 years of age. The group is led by Glynis Morris, but the activities are defined by the participants. Weekly topics range from many issues faced living OUT in the suburbs. Also holds many social events throughout the year!
