Join Queering the Family for our February gathering at the Bhakti Yoga Movement Center. Ruth from the Turnback Boyz will grace us with live tunes and some DJing to get the kids dancing, we’ll have food to prevent the hanger, and a babysitter—ehem—bubble machine to entertain the kiddies so parents have a chance to mingle.
There will also be a chance to get portraits of your cute queer family as @ashliebehmphotography will be there to make it happen—fancy, we know. ;)
Come connect with other members of the community and stick around for a special announcement on how we’re planning to work with The Side Yard Farm this summer!

About Queering the Family
To liberate queer families by fostering environments where we are seen, affirmed, and celebrated.
We envision living in a world where queer families can exist without having to engage in emotional labor or assimilate for the sake of connection and, instead, can lean into the joys of our culture.
In creating physical and digital spaces for queer families, we seek to foster an educated, loving, and uplifting world where we can thrive.
