Parents and family members of those who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community meeting for conversation and support.
When you join this group you will be asked to post a photo and identify how you are related to someone who identifies as part of the LBGTQ+ Community. This information is not public and cannot be seen by those outside of the group. All group members need to be approved by the organizer. If I have any doubts at all about the legitimacy of your joining this group I will deny membership until my questions have been satisfied. This is for the protection of those in the group and their loved ones.
This meet-up is not designed for the LGBTQ+ individuals themselves. It is designed to be an open opportunity for parents and other family members to be able to voice their fears and concerns and get support without interfering with the relationships and well-being of the individuals. This does not disclude parents and family members who are themselves members of the community, who are, of course welcome. But please be prepared for the possibility of questions coming up that we tend to associate with the ignorant and uniformed masses when it comes to LGBTQ+ issues as the point of the meet-up is to be able to ask questions about things that we don't understand and gain insight.
