Why start or join a community group or COLAGE chapter?

These spaces change lives. One of the greatest challenges reported by youth and adults with LGBTQ parents is a sense of isolation, alone-ness, or feeling that “they are the only one.” When folks with LGBTQ families get together, regardless of what we actually do or say, it’s a positive experience that can’t be underestimated. Participants in COLAGE often share that being able to connect with others who have similar families, backgrounds, and experiences not only increase their family pride and self-esteem, but allow them to see themselves as part of a supportive and dynamic community and to find their place in the LGBTQ movement.
