WHY WE EXIST

  • LGBTQ+ youth are 4x more likely to attempt suicide compared to their peers. 

  • Without an affirming parent, LGBTQ+ youth are at the highest rate of suicide and can rarely access mental health services including therapy and gender-affirming care.

Mama Dragons is a nonprofit (501c3) organization dedicated to creating LGBTQ+ affirming homes through parent education. Since 2013, Mama Dragons has grown from just a handful of LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day-Saints) mothers to an organization that now supports over 10,500+ mothers from various backgrounds. We've created more affirming homes for over 15,000 LGBTQ+ people.

 

Mama Dragons provides programs that specifically address the complexities of navigating mental health, non-affirming religions, geographies, and cultures. We focus on parenting the crucial first year after an LGBTQ+ child comes out. Mama Dragons empowers mothers to support, affirm, celebrate, and advocate for their LGBTQ+ children, influencing the family system to follow.​

OUR MISSION

We support, educate, and empower mothers of LGBTQ+ children.

We envision a world in which all mothers fiercely love, affirm, and advocate for their LGBTQ+ children.
