This is a conscious community for gay men to connect with each other on the journey of healing from shame and becoming more authentic and aligned to their truth.

The GMB aims to offer inspiration, support, connection, healing, and a safe space to show up just as you are.


Our vision for the members is to learn to feel more comfortable showing up vulnerably so deeper intimacy can be established in our community.

We dream of a gay community where everyone can feel more connected to one another in more ways than just superficial and we can feel less lonely and have deeper connections to one another.

The deets on your GMB leadership team

Michael DiIorio

Michael DiIorio

I am a certified Life & Wellness Coach, writer, and personal development junkie. I founded Wellismo in 2019 as a blog that intersects personal development and sexuality. In 2020, I became a certified wellness coach with the International Association of Wellness Professionals (IAWP). I expanded into private coaching as a way to work directly with clients to guide them through their own personal transformation.⁠

I coach people of all genders and sexual preferences, but my specialty is helping gay men overcome the struggles of modern life by cultivating constructive mental habits and developing emotional maturity. My candid approach in discussing gay culture at its most raw is atypical of a traditional wellness coach, and clients find it refreshingly honest. ⁠

Since launching Wellismo in 2019, it has amassed over 5,000 readers in 122 countries. I have coached clients in Canada, U.S.A., Spain, Israel, and Italy.⁠

Hey, I’m Calan, thanks for stopping by! I’m a certified life coach, business coach, writer, educator, and podcaster.

I teach entrepreneurs, influencers, and business owners the profitable action steps for setting up and maintaining a successful online business while guiding them on how to build a solid mental foundation and supporting them through the tough parts.

⁠I’ve been in the personal development world for over 10 years now and I’ve been coaching professionally since 2018. I’m also a giant fantasy book nerd, I’m obsessed with tea and on Mondays, I enjoy playing in the Toronto gay dodgeball league.

I currently call Toronto home but I’ve lived in 5 major cities all over the world: Vancouver, New York, London UK, Dubai and now Toronto. I’ve been to over 80 countries and over 200 cities and I still have so many more to see (I love to travel)!

That’s it for now, I hope you all have the best day ever!
