Roeper Affinity Group for Parents & Allies of LGBTQ+ Youth

lgbtq-bannerWhat is the Roeper Affinity Group for Parents & Allies of LGBTQ+ Youth? — an affinity group born from the shared struggle of parents trying to understand and support their student’s journey of identity and orientation. We welcome parents without regard to their personal comfort with, acceptance of, or tolerance for LGBTQ-ness and without regard to religious conviction or political inclinations.

PURPOSE: This is a confidential, affinity group for parents, guardians and adult allies of students who are members of the LGBTQ+ community. Our focus is on supporting parents to enable them to better support our students. This group is independent of, but supported by, The Roeper School. It is parent-run and has no formal role in the administration of the Roeper School. We are not mental health professionals nor experts.
CONFIDENTIALIATY & SAFETY CODE: We expect all participants in this group to maintain the highest level of confidentiality with regard to student lives. What is discussed in this group must stay in this group. This is for the social, emotional and physical health of our students.

If you would like to join us in our efforts to better understand and support students belonging to (or exploring) the LGBTQ+ community, please send an email to:
