Supporting LGBTQ+ Loved Ones: A Workshop for Families

Join PFLAG NYC as we share our resources for families and caregivers of LGBTQ+ youth. We will hear from a PFLAG parent about their own personal experience having an LGBTQ+ child, discuss common reactions and worries when someone comes out, and learn basic steps to advocating for your kid in school. There will be time for questions and discussion. We welcome folks of all learning levels and interest points. This will be a space to learn important resources, get curious, and share openly. This will be a hybrid program. Register today!

Black Family Circle

Black Family Circle is PFLAG NYC’s group dedicated to families and individuals who identify as Black and who have lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) loved ones. It provides a warm and inviting space to gather virtually and find community. This group provides family-to-family support with a focus on the intersection of accepting an LGBTQ+ or same-gender loving (SLG) child and one’s experience as a member of the Black community. While the experiences of being Black in America vary tremendously, there are shared cultural factors that play a role in supporting a family’s well-being, resiliency, and understanding when a loved one comes out as LGBTQ+. Come into the Circle with us! Black Family Circle meets online on the fourth Sunday of every month from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. ET. For more information and to register, please click here.

SOGI Tweens Group

The SOGI (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity) Tweens Group is a support group for parents/caregivers and supportive friends or family members of LGBTQIA+ young people entering/in early adolescence - roughly aged 9-15 (with some flexibility). There are so many concerns, challenges, and discoveries occurring around puberty for Queer and TGNC young people (and those who love them!), including identity, sexuality, body image, gender-affirming medical care, names and pronouns, and navigating family, school and peer relationships. Join our community to meet understanding friends, share information and resources, and get support as we strive to show up and advocate for our kiddos to be their most authentic selves. *This group will be facilitated in English but one of our regular facilitators is also fluent in Spanish. Note that this group arose from within the TFP (Trans Families Project) group and families are welcome to join/attend both; SOGI Tweens offers an inclusive, age-group-specific space for families of youth who identify anywhere within the rainbow spectrum. *Las consultas en español están bien!
