Group for families with LGBTQ+ Loved ones

Familias y Diversidad

Somos Familia’s Familias y Diversidad Spanish - language support group is made up of mothers, fathers and relatives of people who identify themselves as LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer and more).

We meet to share our experiences and concerns related to having children with LGBTQ+ orientations and identities, inform ourselves and educate ourselves on how to support them in an integral way. We build safe spaces in our homes and community for our LGBTQ+ children and our families. We overcome our own prejudices, homophobia and transphobia that block acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community in general.

Meeting times: Second Wednesday of the month from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and every third Sunday of the month from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Currently, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are meeting solely through Zoom.
