This is a new support group to help provide a safe space where parents and LGBTQI+ Individuals from religious or faith backgrounds can come together to find answers, or to support others on the same journey to find acceptance and understanding.
We invite Parents of LGBTQI+ individuals to come along who would like to understand the sexuality and gender identity of their children more, by asking questions to members of the LGBTQI+ community without fear of 'getting it wrong' or 'saying the wrong thing at the wrong moment'.
LGBTQI+ individuals we invite to come along to ask parents questions about their own perspectives, and to help them understand us - who we really are - ultimately to help them understand their LGBTQI+ children more.
Who are we? Naz and Matt Foundation is a registered charity that tackles homophobia triggered by religious or cultural beliefs to help parents accept their children.
As part of our work we deliver school talks around the UK on this topic, and 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.
London Friend is the UK’s oldest LGBT charity, and provides health and wellbeing support including coming out groups; social and other support groups; counselling and mental health support; drugs & alcohol; sexual health & HIV prevention; and work with LGBT asylum seekers and refugees.
