Welcome Parents!


Indiana Youth Group's Parents of Progress (POP) program offers parents and caregivers of LGBTQ youth a safe space to become educated about and feel supported in topics that are important to developing and sustaining a happy and healthy relationship with their youth.

Parents of Progress (POP)

  • Learn about all things LGBTQ+
  • Discover different styles of communication
  • Find out how to be the best support for your youth
  • Find out where to find support for yourself
  • Meet and share with parents/caregivers like you

Parents of Progress (POP) meetings will be listed on our main calendar.

An alternative for parental support can be found through PFLAG. Their mission is to: 

  • Support for families, allies and people who are LGBTQ
  • Education for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges facing people who are LGBTQ
  • Advocacy in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws that achieve full equality for people who are LGBTQ
Founded in 1972 with the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son, PFLAG is the nation's largest family and ally organization. Uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) with families, friends, and allies, PFLAG is committed to advancing equality and full societal affirmation of LGBTQ people through its threefold mission of support, education, and advocacy.Find out more about Indy PFLAG HERE.
