LGBTQIA+ Support Group
LGBTQIA+ people need support when their family does not understand or support their identity. They need a peer or aunty or uncle who will listen to their story and give them space to express their complex feelings of pride in their identity as well as regret for the loss of family and community support. We provide that through our monthly support group for LGBTQIA+ adults over 18, creating an affirming space where accepting parents and peers listen and share their own journeys.
Our groups are led by volunteers who are themselves LGBTQIA+ or parents and allies, and are intended to provide peer led support. While guest experts may be invited to speak on certain topics, we do not provide advice or medical information. Topics may vary, the focus of the group is to learn to support and affirm your child and/or loved ones.
Desi Rainbow is currently only able to serve folks who live primarily in North America. As a mostly volunteer-operated organization, our capacity is limited. If you live outside of North America, please check out our resources page for other organizations who may be better equipped to meet your needs: www.desirainbow.org/resources/
