The Network aims to be the center of a vibrant and inclusive West Michigan. We offer resources, support, social opportunities, education, and resources to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities regardless of ethnic background, race, religious affiliations, ability, social economic status, political affiliation, and/or age. The Network provides a safe place to understand ourselves, and connect with and support one another. Join us and engage West Michigan as we build a community that has room for all of us.
Nurture Our Family
The Network empowers people from throughout the LGBT spectrum, including those who are questioning, as well as our allies. Our programming meets each individual where they are and helps them in their journey towards fully being themselves.
Every summer, we occupy downtown Grand Rapids and show the world we are here, we matter, and we are ready to partner to make West Michigan the best place to live in the world. Throughout the year, we seek to recognize LGBT contributions and accomplishments, and to increase acceptance and inclusion.
Today, more LGBT people enjoy recognition that their lives and loves are equal than ever before. We have an historic opportunity to change the conversation around our community. Our gifts and talents will build the best of communities, and we will build it for everybody.
