Parents

‘Coming out’ to our parents is one of the hardest things any LGBTQI+ person will ever have to do. Because in that moment everything can change, instantly. If our parents accept us, we are safe. But if our parents reject us, we could lose everything and everyone we have ever loved, forever.

Our charity is working on a number of key initiatives and campaigns to help remove the barriers that prevent religious and culturally conservative parents from accepting their LGBTQI+ children.

We invite Parents of LGBTQI+ individuals to come along to our friendly support group 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’, particularly when influenced by cultural or religious belief.
