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.
