This session will be a very important date as it will mark exactly 4 years to the day that my darling Naz sadly passed away on July 30th 2014. We will hold a one minute silence to remember Naz, and the many others in our community and around the world who are not accepted by the parents.
We invite Parents of LGBTQI+ individuals to come along who would like to understand the sexuality and gender identity of their children more, by asking questions to members of the LGBTQI+ community without fear of ‘getting it wrong’ or ‘saying the wrong thing at the wrong moment’.
We invite LGBTQI+ individuals to come along to ask parents questions about their own perspectives, and to help them understand us – who we really are – ultimately to help them understand their LGBTQI+ children more.
Our aim is to make it a relaxed and informal gathering for everyone. We will be interested to hear your personal stories, your hopes for the group and how ways we can support each other.
We will also use this session to shortlist questions and answers that can be published on our new peer-to-peer support service website, Ask Naz.
- The event will run from 6.45pm to 8:45pm
- The address is in Central London. The venue location can be viewed only by members of this group for safety.
- We have a maximum capacity at the event of about 16.
- It will be a great help to the organisers if you can complete the questions on your Meetup profile as it will help us understand who is attending in advance and plan the evening accordingly.
What to bring
You do not need to bring anything with you, other than an open mind and a willingness to help each other.

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.
