We hope that you will visit one of our meetings, whether you are a parent, family member, or friend of a GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender) person, or a GLBT person yourself. We believe that you will find a group of caring people who want to understand where you are and perhaps where you are trying to go in your life.
Our group is made up of parents, family, and friends, as well as GLBT folks themselves. It is a wonderful, supportive mixture of people who learn from each other about their lives.
Come and join us!
Marriage & Family Equality in VA!
On October 6, 2014, the United States Supreme Court denied review of a federal legal case in which a federal judge and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit had ruled that banning same-sex couples from marriage is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court’s decision to deny review meant that same-sex couples in Virginia could get married effective immediately, and Virginia began issuing marriage licenses that day.
On October 10, Governor Terry McAuliffe directed the Virginia Department of Social Services to inform local social services divisions that adoption between same-sex spouses is now legal across the Commonwealth.
