Did you know there are over 10,000 conservative, Christian mothers in America who accept their LGBTQ children?

Spread across the country but connected through private Facebook groups, they help one another overcome the teachings of their churches and call themselves “mama bears”—because of how ferociously they fight for the civil rights of their children and the entire LGBTQ community.

Although they may have grown up as fundamentalist, evangelical Christians, mama bears are willing to risk losing friends, family, and faith communities to keep their offspring safe—even if it challenges their belief systems and rips their worlds apart.

Mama Bears will introduce audiences to several mothers at different stages on the journey toward acceptance.
