At Boston Children's Hospital, we embrace our diversity not only to deliver the best care, but also to make Children's a better place to work. Boston Children's supports our patients, families, and staff within the GLBT community.

The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered (GLBT) & Friends Group was started in December 2008 as a support group and resource for GLBT patients, families, and friends. The Group meets the third Tuesday of each month.

GLBT & Friends is committed to supporting the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender staff and employees at Boston Children's Hospital--and for their friends and allies. We invite you to join us at the annual Boston Pride March each June.

Leader in LGBT Healthcare EqualityLGBT Healthcare Equality Leader

Boston Children's Hospital is one of a select group of 496 healthcare facilities nationwide to be named Leaders in LGBT Healthcare Equality.  Facilities awarded this title meet key criteria, including patient and employee non-discrimination policies that specifically mention sexual orientation and gender identity, a guarantee of equal visitation for same-sex partners and parents, and LGBT health education for key staff members.


We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
