Playgroups & Get Togethers

Rainbow Families collaborates with members to organize playgroups for infants, toddlers, and school aged children. Groups are informal; the frequency, location and times are determined based on the needs of group participants
For over 30 year LGBTQ+ parents have witnessed the value in having their children be around other families like theirs. This offers a needed additional sense of belonging, familiarity, and community, plus tremendous value for the parents. As Rainbow Families expands to include all LGBTQ+ family members and structures, including trans and GNC adults and children, the benefit only increases. In all ways, it’s vital to celebrate and take pride in all LGBTQ+ families.
Visit the “Engage with Us” tab from the homepage for ideas on ways to connect our children, our families, and our community. And when we resume our in-person gatherings, that information will be posted here as well as on our calendar section
Don’t see a gathering, event, or playgroup in your neighborhood?
As a volunteer-driven organization, why not volunteer to organize a playgroup in your area. We are always looking for volunteers to help initiate playgroups. Volunteers serve as the playgroup coordinator and help welcome families who attend. As a volunteer, you determine the playgroup’s date, time and location that works best for you, and we’ll help spread the word to families in your area. One-time commitments are always welcome!
If you are interested in this, post a playgroup suggestion on the Member’s Closed Facebook page, or e-mail Rainbow Families with “Playgroup” in the subject line.
