Did you know that not all YMCAs allow gay families to join under a family membership? Some do, some don't. I was not aware of this until I found out because it is affecting a dear friend and her family. Apparently it is up to the individual facilities to make the policy. Please sign this petition in an effort to encourage J. Smith Young YMCA in Lexington, NC to change their policy regarding the definition of family and allow gay families to join and be recognized as families. Thank you.
