Naz and Matt Foundation
What: We tackle homophobia triggered by religion to help parents accept their children.
Naz and Matt Foundation was set up in 2014 following the sad loss of Matt’s fiancé, Naz, who took his own life two days after his deeply religious family confronted him about his sexuality.
Naz and Matt Foundation exists to empower and support LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Intersex) individuals, their friends and family to work towards resolving challenges linked to sexuality or gender identity, particularly where religion is heavily influencing the situation.
We are a registered UK charity and have won multiple awards for our work building bridges between religious and LGBTQI+ communities.
