#OutAndProudParentsDay is funded through the kindness of donations from members of the public, parents, families, LGBTQI+ individuals, our patrons and carefully selected partners.
In 2020 the Pink Triangle Trust graciously and generously supported the annual event. We would like to thank them for their support.
With the help of their donation the campaign went global and reached well over 1.6million people in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, North America and India.
About Pink Triangle Trust
The Pink Triangle Trust was established in 1992 as a UK-registered charity (No. 1015629) and is the only charity of its kind in the UK. It was set up to advance the education of the public, and particularly of lesbians and gay men, in the principles and practice of secular humanism, and to advance the education of the public about all aspects of homosexuality, regardless of belief or outlook.
The charity is run by volunteers with minimal admin costs and receives no money from government sources, but thanks to the generosity of our donors, over many years, the trust is able to make donations to organisations, schools, and one-off events or campaigns, to further the understanding of LGBT people and their lives, as well as an understanding of the humanist outlook.
Through our carefully placed donations, the trust seeks to assist and alleviate the difficulties LGBT people may face as a result of prejudice, whether familial, institutional, or religious in origin. Much of this support is channelled overseas to countries where the persecution of LGBT people is often rife and extreme, but some gay people still face prejudice, ostracism, and even threats of violence here in the UK.
The PTT is proud to have been able to assist Naz and Matt Foundation with its hugely successful on-line #OutAndProudParentsDay in July 2020, which brought together parents who have reconciled with their son or daughter’s sexuality, in the hope that their journey will help and reassure other parents still struggling to understand and accept their own child’s sexual orientation.
While the N&MF and PTT may have differing perspectives and priorities, both charities share the same goal in seeking to foster understanding and acceptance of LGBT people, so with that aim in mind, we were able to work constructively together on that basis and hope to do so again.
