National Network of LGBTQ Family Groups

With the evolution of social media and online networks, LGBTQ family groups have sprung up across the nation; however, no coordinating body has previously existed to support and connect those networks.

Family Equality Council has created the National Network of LGBTQ Family Groups to do just that. The Network serves as a platform to empower, educate, and support LGBTQ family groups and community leaders.

Mission Statement

The National Network of LGBTQ Family Groups aims to create community while coordinating and supporting existing parent groups, community leaders, and those who wish to form groups. In addition, Family Equality Council will empower and support group and community leaders to help enhance their work and better support families. The National Network of LGBTQ Family Groups is committed to being welcoming, mindful, and inclusive of marginalized LGBTQ groups including but not limited to families of color, trans families, single parents, poly families, isolated families in rural towns, and families of low socioeconomic status.
