As part of FFLAG’s 25 year anniversary celebrations we were invited to be part of a day long event in Manchester organised by the much loved charity.
Our Foundation facilitated two workshop sessions focused on religion, culture and homophobia. The sessions were designed to help delegates explore, through peer-to-peer dialogue, the impact that conservative religious interpretations and values may have on LGBT individuals. And importantly, what can be done to support someone facing abuse from their family because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Naz and Matt Foundation would like to wish the entire FFLAG team a very happy anniversary. We look forward to your next 25 years and working with you.
Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays is a national voluntary organisation and registered charity. They are dedicated to supporting parents and their lesbian, gay, bisexual and Trans daughters and sons. FFLAG provide a central point for exchange of information between parents groups and local parent contacts.
Matt set up the Naz and Matt Foundation in memory of his soulmate and fiancé, Naz, who passed away two days after being confronted about his sexuality by his religious parents. It was the first time that they knew their son was gay, in a relationship with Matt for 13 years and that they were planning to get married.
