“Being gay is not a Western invention, it is a human reality… know that you are not alone”                                                                                                      Hillary Clinton

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and or intersex (LGBTI) is something to be celebrated. Our unique and privileged perspective is to be acknowledged and respected. It is our basic human right to be who we are no matter where we live, work or travel.

Pink Families are families that involve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and or intersex individual(s). We are therefore sisters, brothers, moms, dads, aunts, uncles, pet owners, grandpas, grandmas, and so on.

We are two moms with grand children and great grandchildren, two dads with kids, we are two grandmas or two grandpas with children, we are single or in a relationship, we are single parents. We are also young children, young adults and adult children with aging parent(s).

LGBTI people have always been a part of someone’s family. Many of us now also have our own family. Or we are about to start a family.

Pink Families is a platform to celebrate and to help keep these families – no matter their shape, size or make up – healthy, proud and informed. This is the worldview of the team at Pink Families – join us if you are passionate about this.
