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 has created the National Network of LGBTQ+ Family Groups to do just that. The Network will serve as a platform to empower, educate, and support LGBTQ+ family groups and community leaders.
To create a community for LGBTQ+ family groups and community leaders to connect, share challenges and successes, obtain training, access resources, connect and learn from each other.

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 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, polyamorous families, isolated families in rural towns, families of low socioeconomic status, families of differing ability status, and those impacted by HIV and/or AIDS.
