Join us to meet other gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans*, and queer families living in the Chicagoland area.  Allies and extended family are also welcome to join the group or come to events.

We have a range of activities for all ages, including weekend getaways, camping, potlucks, beach trips, restaurant meals, museum and zoo outings, and anything else we can think up!  The group is a great way to come together and meet other families for social outings and to form long lasting friendships.
