Sara Cunningham & Liz Dyer

Sara Cunningham, author/activist and founder of the non-profit, Free Mom Hugs began her journey in conservative Oklahoma, when her son, Parker, came out as gay. As a woman of faith, she wrestled with the news, until she began to study, research, and reconcile the two worlds. Sara's journey resulted in her book How We Sleep at Night and her Free Mom Hugs movement. Liz Dyer, founder of the Mama Bears, started a private Facebook group to support, educate and empower moms of LGBTQ kids in 2014. Her dream was that the moms who joined the group would help make the world a kinder, safer, more loving place for all LGBTQ people to live. Today that dream is coming true. Over the years more than 28,000 moms have joined the group and it has grown into a whole network of groups, projects, resources and websites that support, educate and empower moms of LGBTQ kids and the LGBTQ community. Free Mom Hugs and the Mama Bears are official partners. For more info visit their websites and
