The Pride and Joy Foundation is dedicated to building self-awareness and safety in LGBTQ families and their allies.
The idea was born from a realization that we have many traumatized LGBTQ adults in our society, damaged from childhood experiences, societal experiences, and the like.
These deep-feeling, compassionate adults are now productive members of society and trying to nurture their own families, while still navigating relationships with their families of origin. Some of which may still be within very difficult circumstances.
At the same time, we have current-day LGTBQ youth who are trying to navigate their way as well and are at risk of becoming damaged adults themselves. Thus the cycle repeats. And that’s what we’re here to change.
