Our Fundraising Campaign is Underway

Our beautiful families face significant threats and challenges in today's political climate

Rainbow Families’ 20 year mission of supporting, educating, empowering
and connecting LGBTQ+
families is even more vital today  

The reality is, our low membership dues do not cover the cost of our existing programs, much less the
expanded services we must offer our community

Please help us do more for LGBTQ+ families
with your tax deductible one-time gift, or a
monthly source of support


In 2019 we will provide added:   
Advocacy  |  Legal Info  |  Support  for divorced Rainbow Families  | Resources in  outlying areas  | 
Events  | Diversity outreach | Member engagement  | Resource Directory  |  and...

A POWERFUL Family Conference on May 5 2019

Thank you - Have a wonderful holiday season from our family to yours

Legal update   Michele Zavos     November 15, 2018

Recently, my associate Rebekah DeHaven and I wrote an article on Parentage for the Maryland State Bar Association.   While some of the information is specific to Maryland law, much of it applies to every jurisdiction and should give you a pretty good idea of how to establish parentage in your family for the non-birth, non-adoptive, or non-genetic parent.  These are complex issues.  Our best advise is to ensure you have a second-parent adoption or other court order which establishes parental rights for BOTH parents (if there are two).  Feel free to call us with questions - we are glad to help.
