What we're about

Support group to help provide a safe space where parents and LGBTQI+ Individuals from religious, or culturally conservative, backgrounds can come together to find answers, or support others on their journey to find acceptance and understanding.

We invite Parents of LGBTQI+ individuals to come along who would like to understand more about sexuality and gender identity, by asking questions to members of the LGBTQI+ community without fear of 'getting it wrong' or 'saying the wrong thing at the wrong moment'.

We invite LGBTQI+ individuals to come along and meet others on a similar journey to themselves, in a safe, caring and nurturing space.

Who are we?
Naz and Matt Foundation is a multi-award winning charity that tackles homophobia triggered by religious or cultural beliefs to help parents accept their children. Our main work is to remove the barriers that prevent religious and culturally conservative parents from accepting their LGBTQI+ children.

As part of our work we produce books (Salim’s Secret), films (My God, I’m Queer), hold annual events (Out and Proud Parents Day), and deliver talks around the UK on this subject. We campaign in the local, national an international media about the damaging impact of homophobia triggered by religious or cultural beliefs.

"Our mission is to never let religion, any religion, come in the way of the unconditional love between parents and their children."
