Out With The Family hold events based in London for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender parents and their children.
Sunday 13th September 2015 - 11:00am – 4:00pm.
Actors Charlie Condou and Sophie Ward (both of whom raise their children with their same-sex partners) founded OWTF after noticing that the LGBT parenting community did not have a place to come together with their families.
They wanted to create a place that was safe for children with LGBT parents to play with one another, enabling the children to make connections and creating a space for the children to feel accepted and see other families similar to their own. Their parents would also have a place to go to meet with other LGBT parents, offering a chance for them to discuss parenting issues in a safe and supportive environment.
In September 2013, OWTF held an event at ZSL London Zoo, which was a big success and received a lot of positive feedback. This encouraged them to create more events and create another event at the ZSL London Zoo! This event will be taking place on Sunday 13th September 2015. The event will offer a chance for children to meet with animals in the morning and in the afternoon, one hour to explore the zoo, entertainment, and a BBQ lunch where families will come together.
You can book your tickets for the event over on their website - www.outwiththefamily.co.uk.
Tickets cost £20 per adult and kids go free! They recommend to book your tickets in advance as the event has limited numbers. This is a great opportunity to meet with other LGBT parents and straight allies to aid networking of the LGBT parenting community. It is a great family day out and will offer a space for children to relax and enjoy themselves during the ‘back to school’ term.
