About Us

We are an international, multi-faith, peer-support fellowship.

Mission & Vision

Brothers on a Road Less Traveled (“Brothers Road”) is international, diverse, mulit-faith, and faith-affirming. We are peer-led, non-profit, and volunteer-based.

Our Mission

We are a faith-affirming fellowship whose primary mission is to offer brotherhood and peer support to men who seek to better align their sexual thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with their core values, beliefs, faith, and life goals.

We especially support:

  • Men who want to explore unresolved issues and heal underlying pain that may be driving unwanted sexual thoughts, feelings, or behaviors
  • Men who want to explore affirming ways to lessen the distress, intensity, or frequency of any same-sex attractions — while remaining true to their deeply held values, beliefs, and religious or marital commitments
  • Men seeking to grow in self-worth, masculinity, community, and connection
  • Women who have experienced betrayal or trauma in a relationship, and women who want to better understand themselves and those they love.

Our Vision

We envision a more compassionate world of mutual respect where all of us — whether we identify as gay, straight, bisexual, same-sex attracted, ex-gay or anything else — are free to choose our own identities and life paths and to live full lives in peace.

We envision a world in which all people who are dissatisfied with their same-sex attractions are free to voluntarily explore ways to align their sexual and romantic feelings with their own personal faith, values, and life goals without harassment, intimidation, ridicule or legal or other prohibitions.

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

—Robert Frost, 1916

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
