We serve Straight Partners and Partners of Trans People, families and the community by: REACHING OUT to increase visibility of Straight Partners and Partners of Trans People and their access to support. HEALING to empower Straight Partners and Partners of Trans People to find their own path post-discovery or disclosure and to cope constructively. BUILDING BRIDGES between spouses, within families, with LGBT+ organizations and the larger community through support, education and advocacy.
Since our founding 30 years ago, OurPath has stood as an ally to LGBT+ individuals. We support full rights and equality for the LGBT+ community, including the passage of the Equality Act in 2021. In 2008, we published a position paper on the harms of so-called Conversion Therapies and Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE), and in 2015, we cheered the United States Supreme Court decision to affirm marriage equality in Obergefell v. Hodges.
Our earliest support and funding came from LGBT+ groups such as PFLAG and Family Equality Council. Indeed, we began our work as a task force assembled under PFLAG.
In 2021, OurPath recommits to the vision of full equality for all LGBT+ people.
