Family and Friends

Being a parent, family member or friend to someone who is LGBTIQA+ can be tough sometimes

Family and Friends 

Being a parent of someone LGBTIQA, or their family & friends can be wonderful and enriching but it can also seem overwhelming and confusing at times too.

Whether you’re curious, have just learned about their identity or are a flag waving supporter, our trained staff and volunteers can provide information, referrals and better practice strategies. It’s free and confidential.

Parents, family & friends can get questions answered or browse our resource library for helpful articles and video clips or find out how to be an ally in our inclusivity training.
