Making Rainbow Families Seminar

This month we held our Making Rainbow Families Seminar – a day for LGBTQ+ people considering parenthood to explore the options and meet the people that can help make their dream a reality.

We had a variety of different presenters throughout the day including:


Thank you to our volunteers who contributed to the day by being on a panel and sharing their story. Bridget, Gemma, Kylie, Marly, Jules, Jai, Kurt, Jess, Xavier, Rory, Daniel, Shaq, Kate and Katlyn. Personal stories are so important for people when considering the options available to them. We appreciate your openness and willingness to support the next generations of LGBTQ+ parents.

A huge thank you to Scott Brunelle who volunteered to coordinate this day again for our community. Bringing together all of these experts in their field along with community members to share their experiences is no easy task. Scott thank you for another very successful start to so many families’ journey to parenthood.

We hope to run another Making Rainbow Families Seminar next year. If you would like to be notified when tickets are available, please RSVP here.
