Rainbow Families QLD is re-launching after several years in hiatus, and it’s going to be FABULOUS!

LGBTQIAP families from all over Queensland will be converging to re-launch Rainbow Families QLD. Regional groups across the state will also be celebrating on the 22nd of July, with community picnics planned in areas from Cairns through to Mackay and the Fraser Coast.

Rainbow Families Qld represents LGBTQIAP families in Queensland regarding advocacy, legislation reform, and educational resources. The organisation also runs social events, an annual camping trip, and fertility information sessions for the LGBTQIAP community, and helps coordinate monthly get-togethers in both Brisbane and across regional Queensland.

Dean Arcuri spoke to the convener of Rainbow Families Queensland, Holly Zwaif to find out all about it.

The Rainbow Families Queensland re-launch is on July 22nd will have something for kids of all ages. From crafts stations, to drag story time and even a singalong cushion corner.

Rainbow Families QLD are in the process of establishing two weekly playgroups in Brisbane, one northside and one southside, as well as a playgroup on the Sunshine Coast, in conjunction with Accessible Playgroups Qld. There are also plans to start groups on the Gold Coast, Ipswich, and Toowoomba in the near future.

You can find out more about their launch event at the East Brisbane Bowls Club on July 22nd as well as reaching out to them by heading to their facebook group, Rainbow Families Queensland Community, or find more details at Rainbow Families Queensland on Facebook:
