Our Mission

The Magic City Acceptance Project (MCAP) is a volunteer network of individuals, agencies and organization focused on professional practice and community support that results in positive outcomes and a positive future for self-identified, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning youth, adults and families in Birmingham, Alabama and surrounding communities.

MCAPs philosophy is based on the work of Dr. Caitlin Ryan and the Family Acceptance Project and reflects the belief that families love their children and want the best for them. It is also based on recognition of the strength and resilience of  self-identified LGBTQ youth in our community.  MCAP believes that change will be driven by their commitment to a welcoming and affirming community for all.
