Family Research Council

Christian anti-LGBTQ organization

The Family Research Council (FRC) is a evangelical activist and lobbying organization that was founded in the early 1980s by James Dobson. It is one of the most influential and extreme anti-LGBTQ groups and has compared LGBTQ people to pedophiles, advocated for the discredited and harmful practice of conversion therapy, and defended an anti-gay bill in Uganda that could have punished sodomy by death. Its current president is Tony Perkins, who is a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. FRC also hosts an annual event called the Value Voters Summit where right-wing politicians vie for support of the evangelical right.
