We’re a meet-up for gay dads, lesbian moms, parents-to-be, kids with gay parents and anyone who supports us. We get together to do local family-friendly activities, support each other and have fun. It's OK if you're not out to the whole world, we just want this to be a safe environment for kids and adults to take pride in their family. We're just starting up but we have tons of ideas: play dates in the park, BBQs, hockey, skating, pizza, the mountains to play in the snow, botanical gardens, and laser tag, to name a few.  Visit the website for more info.
