Queer Families: Past, Present, and Promise
This program will explore the history and development of the rights of LGBTQ+ families, including parents and queer youth, in the United States and specifically in Connecticut. We will define the status quo in Connecticut, with a focus on the new Parentage Act. Finally, we will identify the next frontier: areas that still need work in order for queer families to have true equality, and how Connecticut can avoid the
anti-LGBTQ+ fervor arising in other states.
After a morning of presentations, we will have a networking “lunch on your own” and then break out into smaller groups to allow participants to explore more deeply the various topics addressed during the morning. For more information, please click the link below.
