COLAGE is a national organization serving youth in LGBTQ families. We have been empowering, supporting, and networking people w/LGBTQ parents for over 20 years, and in the process connected with incredible youth and parents who also want a support network. In response, we created these groups to allow a COLAGE “safe space” for youth and parents to connect with peers to?ask for advice with challenges, share your joys, discuss?topics together, and learn more about how to support each other. The page is moderated by volunteer COLAGEs and parents in partnership with national program staff who have an LGBTQ parent/s. We ask that all communication remain confidential and that the group members communicate with respect for each other and with best intentions to providing community for each other.

  1. Friend Kaley Fry (Associate Director of Youth and Family Programs).
  2. Message Kaley with the name?of the group you wish to be added to and a brief description of your family structure so we can be sure we are placing you in the right group. The groups are private so membership is kept confidential. At this point, after confirming that you indeed have one or more parent who identifies as LGBTQ, you should be accepted to the group.
