Each year for the past five years, Philadelphia Family Pride has hosted the Family Matters Conference for LGBT parents and prospective parents who are looking to learn, connect and share. It’s one of our most popular events and has become a valuable community resource. If you haven’t registered yet, here is why you should:1. Topic: This year’s conference theme is “Our Families and the Future” and workshops will span subjects like social media, family planning and marriage. There’s something for everyone! Read more about the day’s schedule and programming.
2. Childcare: Participating in conferences can be challenging when you have young kids – that’s why PFP includes childcare in the cost of registration! Now you can focus on the discussion and your kids can have fun.
3. Location: This year the conference is at The Philadelphia School in Center City – this central location ensures no one has to travel too far to attend.
4. Sponsors: We’ve got a great list of sponsors that are helping make all this available to the community at a low price! ($20/adult for PFP members and $30/adult for non-members) If this is out of your reach, scholarships are available. Be sure to stop by the sponsor tables to thank them for making this event possible!
5. Community: Meet and connect with other parents and prospective parents that have gone/are going through a similar journey to yours.
This year’s conference is shaping up to be fantastic and we look forward to seeing you there! Register now!
