QPOCC: Rainbow Families Queer Parents of Color Connection
In Rainbow Families’ continued work towards supporting and engaging all members of the LGBTQ+ family community, we have committed to supporting a space specifically and intentionally created for BIPOC (Black and Indigenous People of Color) who are parents (or hopeful parents!) to connect, recharge, and network with other queer people of color (QPOC). This means you have lived experiences as an adult Black or Brown person, and desire the opportunity to come together as a community to discuss and share resources, laugh and learn about commonalities and differences, as well as dig deeper into the BIPOC experiences that unite us.
At our 2022 Rainbow Families Annual Conference, we held a workshop for parents of color, and heard the desires of the community to have a standing group within this organization. This QPOCC group continues and expands the space and conversations born from that time together.
We invite members and friends, parents or prospective parents, who identify themselves as a member of the QPOC community to participate in our newly formed Rainbow Families Queer Parents of Color Connection (QPOCC).
As we develop programming, you’ll find them listed on our website under “Calendar”.
Additionally, we invite you to complete a short survey and we will be sure to include you in future events and discussions.
Connect with us on the survey or contact us directly at QPOCC@rainbowfamilies.org
