LGBT+ Family & GamesConnect. Empower. Grow.
LGBT+ Family Social Website
Over time the community grew and the staff recognized that members were interested in a wide variety of topics outside of games and so expanded the focus of the group by rebranding as LGBT+ Family & Games. The name itself is a nod to the origins of the community (LFG being a common term normally referring to those “Looking for Group” in game). Members began to vocalize how much they enjoyed the community and how the environment was beneficial to them on a very personal level. We continued to promote a welcoming and empowering environment while discouraging self-hate and self deprecation.
In the latter part of 2017 the founder, James Eades, along with a few of the staff discussed expanding beyond the confines of the chat community to replicate the culture and environment of LGBT+ Family & Games in other online communities while also exploring other programs to assist LGBT+ individuals navigate the tumultuous waters of life.
After some time LGBT+ Family & Games Inc was formed as a Florida corporation and shortly thereafter granted 501(c)3 status to carry out its mission.
In addition to using traditional social media platforms, LGBT+ Family & Games has started its very own social network to provide an outlet for LGBT+ individuals that is protected from hate.
We are on the cusp of starting a number of exciting project which you can read about on the next tab.
It is not uncommon for an LGBT+ teen or young adult to experience discrimination, hate, self-doubt, or even suicidal thoughts. Unfortunately too many go without receiving any support and may be subjected to abuse, harm, and sadly many commit suicide because they feel there is no escape from their cold, cruel reality.
LGBT+ Family & Games is in the process of setting up a network of resources for LGBT+ individuals in these types of situations and environment. We want to empower members of the community and if possible, get them out of harm’s way.
To connect LGBT+ individuals in safe communities across the world while also providing much needed resources and education along with personal and professional growth opportunities.
