Join us every 2nd & 4th Thursday from 12PM-1PM (ET) for Peer Support Space‘s Parenting While LGBTQ+ Group: A peer-led digital gathering for all parents who are LGBTQ+

Who is this space for?

  • All expecting, new, seasoned parents as well as “bonus humans” to children’s lives. Birth, adoptive, unconventional, step and otherwise self-defined parents. We welcome anyone that is taking care of, rearing, nurturing, or care taking another human.
  • This group is centered around those that are transgender, nonbinary, multiple gender loving, lesbian, gay, asexual, intersex- all genders and sexual and romantic orientations are welcome, as are all relationship styles (including polyamory) and/or parenting styles. Basically, anyone under the LGBTQ+ umbrella – however you define yourself, come as you are.
  • Parents who are allies to the LGBTQ+ community are welcome as well.

In this space we invite conversations around parenting- you are welcome to just vent or ask for advice. We also make space for conversations NOT about parenting because we are humans and have lives outside of parenting. This is equally a space to seek support as it is to build friendships with other parents who are LGBTQ+ and allies.

On This Call We:

  • We understand that this is a non-clinical, peer group of people supporting people.
  • We encourage you to meet your needs and come as you are.
  • We welcome discussion of any topic. However, we recognize those on the call are not medical professionals.
  • Welcome all parenting styles and birthing plans with non-judgement.
  • We ask before giving advice, and give advice using “I” statements.
  • We are welcoming of ALL parents regardless of who gave birth, sexual orientation, and gender- If you identify as a parent, you are welcome!
  • We give everyone an equal chance to share.

As parents, we know how busy parents can get! It is totally okay if you hop on late or have your kids with you during a call. You are welcome to have your video on or off, bring a fuzzy blanket, be cooking dinner mid call, be who knows where, or to do whatever to meet your needs! No registration is required to attend, simply hop on whenever you feel the group will be beneficial for you that day! We can’t wait to connect with other parents in a supportive, non-judgemental environment where it’s okay to share all the unique struggles and joys of parenting.
