* 1. Wayside Youth & Family Support is hosting a series of five meet-ups for the parents of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, starting in January 2017. The meet-ups will be free and open to anyone interested in learning more and sharing with other parents. A clinician and a Parent Partner will help facilitate the discussions.

We are looking for your feedback! Let us know the topics that interest you most, and we will build our program around the community's wishes.

In our survey, LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, and Questioning, but we also are talking about youth who are intersex, pansexual, demisexual, asexual, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, bigender, gender fluid and almost anything else you can think of that's not totally "straight" :)

If you are interested in attending this group, please call Jess Begans, a therapist at Wayside, at 508-620-0010 ext 327 or email her at jessica_begans@waysideyouth.org!
