We provide support for LGBTQ people who are seeking support with coming out and parents who are dealing with being come out to. A trained facilitator leads each small group of about 8-10 people for an hour and a half of support. Come support and be supported! You do not have to say anything during the meeting. You can just sit and listen as others share.
