Following on from the last meetup in January, the Naz and Matt Foundation continue to explore some of the thinking and logic that triggers homophobic, transphobic and bi-phobic beliefs in family members, and strategies that may help change it.
We will also use this session to shortlist questions and answers that can be published on our new peer-to-peer support service website, Ask Naz.
The Naz and Matt Foundation invites parents of LGBTQI+ individuals to join a discussion to better understand the sexuality and gender identity of their children, 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.
Our aim is to make it a relaxed and informal gathering for everyone. We will be interested to hear your personal stories, your hopes for the group and how ways we can support each other.
