Rainbow Parenting: Lived Experiences

As more and more LGBTQ+ couples win the legal rights to parenthood around the world, many are beginning the journey towards starting a family of their own. At the same time, as more and more younger people identify as LGBTQ+, their parents are going out of their way to support their children.

Join us on the 29th of March when we'll hear from LGBTQ+ parents, and the parents of LGBTQ+ children, about their journeys, the things they have in common, and the lesson they have learnt. We'll be hearing about the things that you'll want to know before taking the first step to starting a family of your own.
