Coming Out Later In Life

Nashville Conferences

Are you a woman coming out later in life? Would you like to gather with a tribe of women who get it? We are hosting a group of women in fun, exciting Nashville, Tennessee! We have, not one, but two dates scheduled already! February 22 & 23 and April 26 & 27! Together we will share our stories, learn about internalized homophobia, guilt and shame, grief in the coming out process, build resiliency for this journey and provide love/support/enlightenment for each other.  Dr. Rachel Gaillard Smook will be joining us for our April conference!! Rachel is also a later in life lesbian and she brings both personal and professional experience to co-facilitate our April conference.

The cost is $250 for the weekend. This includes:

  • Programming both days

  • Breakfast and Lunch - Friday and Saturday

  • Group outing Friday night - Stay tuned for details!!!

  • Field trip Saturday night to the world famous Lipstick Lounge! Andrea Hewitt and Rachel Owen will be joining us for one of our meeting days and at the Lipstick Lounge (#2 lesbian bar in the world according to Fodor’s Travel) on Saturday night.

  • One online Zoom meeting after the conference.

  • A secret Facebook Group for conference attendees to stay in touch after the amazing weekend we will share.

  • We will send out an email list to all participants several weeks before the conference with all the additional details. In the past many of the women shared AirB&B housing to save on lodging costs. We encourage participants to connect through this email and find housing together!

  • If cost is a factor, financial help may be available, please email Anne-Marie Zanzal at or use this contact form.
