International Family Equality Day: May 3, 2015

Family Equality Council is thrilled to once again join our partners across the globe in celebration of International Family Equality Day (IFED) – a world-wide celebration of the LGBTQ parenting and family community.

Family Equality Council will celebrate the fourth annual International Family Equality Day on May 3rd, 2015, with a variety of community partners and events across the U.S.A.

IFED events can be in whatever scale is right for your community - a meet-up picnic for families in the park, a beach day, a play date in the park ... or dinner out with your own family. Please be sure to check this page for the latest information on events or contact a member of our regional team (listed in the column to the right) about planning a celebration in your area!
