Families Together London
Families Together London provides a listening ear for parents and other family members of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. The people who run the organisation are all in similar circumstances and some of them may have experienced similar emotions. They listen and talk in complete confidence about how they feel, and have been able to learn from one another and gain an understanding of a range of complex issues. Coming to terms with a son or daughter’s same sex attraction may not be easy for some, but by contacting you will be able to gain a greater understanding, challenge ignorance and prejudice and explore how culture and religion impacts on our attitudes and prejudices.
Families Together London hold two meetings every month in London for parents, family and friends – one in Battersea and one in King’s Cross. Meetings are confidential, and offer a safe place in which to talk. They also give talks, hold an annual fundraising lunch, and march at Pride. You can receive help over the phone, meet one-to-one, or attend an informal meet-up where you can talk to other parents who are experiencing, or have experienced what you are going through.
The Families Together London website has useful resources and stories of other parents’ experiences, along with further information about their monthly meetings.
