Mama Dragons Mission
The Mama Dragons group exists to inspire and empower mothers with LGBTQIA children.
We provide an educational and loving space for mothers, so they can celebrate their child and support their family’s unique journey.
While our roots originate in Mormonism, we welcome all mothers who want to learn and need community.
We understand the complexity of navigating the intersection of faith and LGBTQIA communities.
We are sisters. We are Mama Dragons.
“Being a Mama Dragon has opened my mind and my heart to the LGBTQ community. It has melted away the false concepts I learned in my youth as I discovered the truth about what it means to be gay. I am very grateful to see so many other Mama Dragons who have also accepted their children they way they are and formed a supportive group where everyone can feel welcome.”

“Being a Mama Dragon means understanding that my daughter and I are never going to see eye to eye on everything, but if I don’t ask her to change what she feels are fundamental parts of herself, she will do the same for me. Where we meet in the middle is love. I love my gay daughter and she loves her Mormon mother.”

“Being a Mama Dragon means that as I navigate this life with my transgender son, whom I love with all my heart, I have the support and friendship of women who have traveled this road before me, and who help and support me when I need it the most.”
Tina Off, California
“Being a Mama Dragon means I have a place to turn to when I feel discouraged or unsure about issues as it relates to my lesbian daughter. I am not active in the LDS church but my Mormon roots are deep and I do have a strong testimony. I feel supported to know that I am not alone and others have traveled this road as well!”
Tina Judd from Fredonia, Arizona
“Being a Mama Dragon means standing for all kids who are LGBT, and their mothers, so that their futures are as loving and fabulous as they are!”
Susan Mikesell from Park City, UT
“Being a Mama Dragon means loving and accepting my gay son for who he is: a child of God. I love unconditionally as Christ loves all of us. I truly love my son and his partner. I’ve been able to develop an empathy for ALL people because of the unconditional love I have for him.”
Suzzie Hollingsworth Bradshaw from Nevada
“Being a Mama Dragon is all about education. It is about learning how to find resources to help our LGBTQ children navigate this tricky world. It is about learning from other mamas what works and what doesn’t in our quest to make the world a safer place for our LGBT loved ones. It is about learning to better educate our extended families and communities about the issues facing LGBTQ individuals. And most importantly, it is about learning that you are not alone.”
Stephanie Tayler Lobrot from Park City, Utah
“Being a Mama Dragon means I can be an ally for all of my Jr. High students who may have need of positive support. When my own child was questioning his sexual identity, I realized that I could be a voice not only for him, but for all kids who are LGBTQ. “
