A Supportive Group and Resource for Local Families

The pRYEde Family Network is a group of local parents, guardians and family members of LGBTQ+ youth.  We come together to share supportive resources and to connect with each other to share our experiences.
The pRYEde Family Network is run by two amazing moms - Lesley Findlay and Kim Iannucci.   For more information about the PFN please reach out to Lesley and Kim using this contact info:
