Message from President Joe Matessa - September

Next month we are pleased to be hosting our 3rd Annual LGBTQ Family Event, presented by one of our Proud Partners, Equitas Health.  As with the past couple of years, there will be a two-hour session for prospective parents on “Pathways to Parenthood”, where they can begin exploring their options by hearing from parents and industry experts on the topics of adoption, foster parenting, surrogacy, assisted reproduction and financial planning.

For parents and their kids, there will be face painters, balloon artists and a musical performance by the amazing Shazzbots.  All of the attendees will get lunch, and have access to a Resource Fair and Book Fair hosted by the Book Loft, where you can connect with local, welcoming service providers, and purchase LGBTQ-themed books for adults and children.

This is a great opportunity to connect with other parents, and continue exposing our kids to other families like theirs, in a festive celebration that’s both fun and informative.  We look forward to seeing you!
