Family Equality is creating a world where everyone can experience the love, safety, and belonging of family.
As the leading national organization for current and future LGBTQ+ families, we work to ensure that everyone has the freedom to find, form, and sustain their families by advancing LGBTQ+ equality through advocacy, support, storytelling, education, and building resilience.
Family Equality is necessary. Legal, societal, and economic barriers still prevent LGBTQ+ people from starting, protecting, or sustaining families. State-sanctioned attacks on LGBTQ+ youth and families continue, and the Supreme Court has already signaled threats to additional freedoms like marriage and more.
It’s clear. We’re fighting a well-funded anti-LGBTQ+ machine.
With the 550+ anti-LGBTQ+ bills introduced this year in states across the country, it can be tough as an LGBTQ+ person in America. The LGBTQ+ community needs support now more than ever.
The data tells us there is broad support for LGBTQ+ protections and equality in the U.S.:
At Family Equality, we continue fiercely protecting our families. And what we’re doing works! In 2022, thanks to our tireless efforts, along with those of our movement partners, 91% of anti-LGBTQ+ bills in 2022 failed to become law.
LGBTQ+ families all across the country need and deserve protections in all aspects of our lives. And that’s exactly what Family Equality is fighting for. Together, we can create a future where all families with LGBTQ+ families live in communities that recognize, respect, protect, and value them.
But that work takes every one of us.
