On May 6th, 2018, LGBTQ* families and their supporters in Somerville, Massachusetts and around the world will be participating in the 7th annual International Family Equality Day celebration (IFED).

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer parents with children (we call them rainbow families or LGBTIQ* families) are increasingly common; they are gaining visibility as well as social and legal recognition – in some countries. In others, unfortunately, these families have to hide in order to avoid blatant discrimination, stigma, and even the threat of violence. This is why the IFED is so important. Since 2012, IFED has been celebrated on the first Sunday in May all over the world. On this day, rainbow families and their allies come together to promote and celebrate diversity. It was launched as a sign of solidarity and strength and to promote equality for all families. It is our hope that IFED will bring awareness of the need for equal treatment and recognition for all families to our political leaders, and society at large. International Family Equality Day as an important tool to combat homophobia and transphobia and to promote a tolerant and cohesive society.
