NATIONAL

The Family Acceptance Project

The Family Acceptance Project is a research, intervention, education, and policy initiative that works to prevent health and mental health risks for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) children and youth, including suicide, homelessness and HIV – in the context of their families. They use a research-based, culturally grounded approach to help ethnically, socially and religiously diverse families to support their LGBT children.

Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays

Made up of parents, families, friends, and straight allies united with people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT), PFLAG is committed to advancing equality and societal acceptance of LGBT people through its threefold mission of support, education, and advocacy.

Gender Spectrum provides education, training and support to help create a gender sensitive and inclusive environment for all children and teens.
