We are a group of gay fathers that socialize, network, and support each other in each of our personal journeys.  GFC RVA members are committed to the following core values:

  • We will be open and honest to all of our members and are committed to support each other. 

  • To educate and increase community awareness and to provide outreach to professionals and community organizations to support the challenges and issues facing gay fathers.


  • To build community partnerships to better support gay fathers, their children, and families.


  • We will welcome new members at all times to participate in our meetings and social events.


  • We will respect the privacy of all of our members, and the privacy of their children and families.


  • GFC meetings and events are considered a "safe place" and all discussions are considered private and confidential.


  • GFC RVA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, or marital status.


  • Although the GFC RVA is a social group, and close personal relationships are built between members, GFC RVA events are not a place to seek intimate or sexual relationships.


  • GFC RVA events are not a place for illegal drug use or solicitation.
