Seattle families come in all colors of the rainbow! This event is bringing together parents from across the LGBTQ spectrum to share about their home lives–from navigating inquiries from curious strangers, to adventures in explaining how babies are made, to everyday tasks of teething and curfew negotiations. The program is a great chance for same gender couples and their straight allies to understand the unique issues facing LGBTQ families.

Our panelists include Mac McGregor, our first out transgender candidate for Seattle City Council in 2017; Reverend Steven Davis, an openly gay minister with the Plymouth Church and a father of four; Courtney Faria, the Western Region Program Manager of COLAGE, the only national organization by and for people with one or more LGBTQ parents, guardians, or caregivers; and Sarah Toce, partnered lesbian mom who is the Founder of The Seattle Lesbian. The panel will be moderated by Kristin Leong, proud QPOC mom to a 4th grader.
