What we do
If you are a parent whose child just came out, you may be struggling or wondering how to respond. We are mothers who have traveled down this road and want to help you through this crossroads by providing a place for hope, support, learning, and community.

Virtual QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper classes for everyone and a must for every parent
Online community groups for mothers of LGBTQ children navigating parenting, religion, or culture
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 10,000+ 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.
