Local Family Catch-ups

Meeting other rainbow families in your local area is both a lot of fun and helps break through some of the isolation and discrimination LGBTQ+ parents and carers and their children experience. 

Our catchups welcome gay dads, lesbian mums, trans/gender diverse parents, and people who became parents through adoption, fostering and surrogacy. 

Currently, there are active local catch-ups being organised in Sydney, Blue Mountains, Penrith, Illawarra, Curran’s Hill and Macarthur, Newcastle, Port Macquarie, as well as online opportunities to connect via Rainbow Families. 

If you are keen to start a social group for your area - get in touch by email at [email protected] and chat with one of our team and check out this information guide outlining what's involved in coordinating a Rainbow Families event in your area.

And do subscribe to the Rainbow Families newsletter here and follow Rainbow Families on Facebook and Instagram to stay in the loop with what’s happening near you!
