Parents of LGBTQ

Support for parents and guardians of LGBTQ children

WHEN:     7:15 p.m.-8:45 p.m. Every 4th Wednesday of the month.  
WHERE:   Trinity United Methodist Church | 1100 Lake Dr SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506 |

  •  Are you seeking a supportive and social community?
  • Do you wish to speak to other parents / guardians regarding raising your LGBTQ child?
  • Do you need resources, references, and referrals to support your LGBTQ child, as well as your entire family?  

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 Pizza Hut 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 Trinity 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.
