What we're about

Come hang out with queers and kids! All LGB and T people who love babies are welcome.

I took over this Meetup Group from Alyssa (who has since moved out of town), but over the past couple of months, my wife and I had our second baby and have been out of touch. Apologies!

Now - let's restart this group, come together as a community of LGBT parents and support each other as our children grow up here.

Please feel free to introduce yourself to the group (with your preferred pronouns) and don't hesitate to recommend or host events.

LGBT Parent Group Norms:

This group is for parents who identify as queer, gender-non-conforming, LGB, Transgender, non-traditional family. This group is for LGBTQIA parents looking to build meaningful relationships and support with other LGBTQIA parents.

As a participating member we ask that you adhere to some group norms (edited 4/11/18):

-Avoid "should" parenting comments and advice. Everyone has their own parenting style. Instead of telling someone what they "should" be doing, talk about your experiences from your own personal perspective.

-Respect all LGBTQ+ people of all gender identities and non-identities and make this a safe(r) space for them by using their preferred pronouns.

-Do not post or take pictures of participants children without their permission.

-Practice a judgement free zone. Just because someone parents differently then you doesn't make it "wrong" or "bad" parenting.

-Create and maintain a space of encouragement, positivity, and vulnerability. We want this group to be a place where we can build friendships among LGBT parents and their kids. First, we hope this group is fun and an encouragement to you. Second, we want this to be a space where you feel uplifted as an LGBT parent and have a positive experience. Lastly, we recognize that parenting is hard and invite you to come in a spirit of vulnerability willing to ask questions and learn from each other.

We are so happy you are here and look forward to meeting up!
