Rainbow Families

A Rainbow Family is a same-sex or LGBTIQ parented family. At Rainbow Families, we define a Rainbow Family as: any lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex person who has a child or children; or is planning on having a child or children by way of donor insemination (known or unknown), surrogacy (altruistic or commercial), foster care, foster to adoption, adoption (domestic or international), opposite­ sex relationship, co-parenting or other means.

Rainbow Families is a 100% volunteer organisation, providing a network of support to children and families within the NSW LGBTIQ community. Rainbow Families is always seeking new members to join our vibrant community and volunteers to get involved with subcommittees or event support. The Rainbow Families community is an inclusive, welcoming and supportive group and we encourage current LGBTIQ parents or those thinking about parenting to join us as a member or volunteer.
