Lonely no more- a place to gather gives HIV-positive residents a social boost
The Saturday afternoon gatherings of “Gay and Grey” finds a group of men meeting in the basement lounge of Helmcken House to discuss issues about being gay and aging. They talk about serious stuff, but mostly they’re there to get in some much-needed social time.
The renovated lounge has reinvigorated Helmcken House's social scene.
“One thing that is big with any place is a community social space, especially when you’re dealing with health issues and forms of isolation,” said member Fraser Doke. To be able to interact with one another improves your health and improves the quality of life you have and this space very much does that.”
They meet in the lounge, which looks like a sleek gastown apartment with exposed brick, modern couches and a long wooden dinner table fit for a feast. First Nations art adorns the walls and the kitchen is outfitted with new appliances and white cabinetry
