LGBTQ & Friends

LGBTQ & Friends

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Queer (LGBTQ) & Friends Group was started in December 2008 as a support group and resource for LGBTQ staff, patients, families and friends.

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. Children's supports our patients, families and staff within the LGBTQ community.

LGBTQ & Friends is representative of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and queer staff and employees at Boston Children's Hospital — and for their friends and supporters. Current co-chairs are Todd Katzman and Allison Scobie-Carroll.

The LGBTQ & Friends meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 12 p.m. Meetings are held in the Surgical Library/Hunnewell 353, located on Children's Main Campus.

For more information about the LGBTQ & Friends, please email Todd Katzman.
