"Proud Parents" was created from Two Proud Parents and one Proud Child having a chat... and we all know how conversations open up opportunities!
We know, from experience, how under-represented the LGBTQ+ Community is in our area, which led onto the conversation of how under supported friends, family and allies are of the community.
Setting up the Proud Parents Support Group was a 'proud' moment for us all.
We believe that people can overcome most things with support from others, and everyone has immense value and something to give (even if they don't know it). Together us humans can do amazing things. By connecting people to each other in a safe place, people grow into an interconnected community that can solve any problem.
Have a place for Parents and supporters of LGBTQ+ children, building together an interconnected community that is helpful, inclusive and wise, and able to guild Parents and supporters, through the some of the difficulties and struggles that having LGBTQ+ children may or can bring.
We want to help remove any stigma or discrimination of being a parent or a supporter of LGBTQ+ children, enable you to become a proud Parent.
We believe in equality.
