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 every Wednesday. Parents meet at the YWCA at 7:15-8:45 giving them enough time to drop off their children (if they have children attending the group, which is not a requirement). Meeting at the YWCA gives parents and guardians the opportunity to meet in a neutral location that is completely private allowing honest conversation and support.
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.

Grand Rapids Pride Center MSW Intern and co-facilitator for the Young Adults Group, Aubree (Aubs) tells us why Black History Month is important to her.
Today more than ever, it is important that we celebrate the acomplishments made by the LGBTQ Black and African American community. It is past time for us to awkwnowledge these civil rights activists, pioneers, and outspoken leaders, so that they are no longer left out of our shared history. Their contributions and sacrifices have led us to where we are today.
