Supportive space for parents of LGBTQ youth.
Join Grand Rapids Pride Center’s organically formed Parents of LGBTQ youth social and support group. This group is entirely peer facilitated by parents and guardians who have children attending our Youth Group and/or Young Adult Group. The only requirement for attending the group is that you have cared for a child, no matter the age, who identifies as LGBTQ. For individuals 18 years of age and older.
The parent group meets the fourth Wednesday of the month at 1444 Lake Dr SE (the old D'arts Donuts @ the corner of Atlas Ave & Lake Ave). Parents will drop off their children (if they have children attending the group, which is not a requirement) and then head to meeting across the street.
Are allies welcome? Yes! For the Parents of LGBTQ group, past or present parents or guardians of LGBTQ individuals are all encouraged to attend, and may themselves identify in any way.
Join the Facebook group here. Anyone that finds the group page online can see that you are a member, however only members can see posts and events.
