The “International Family Equality Day” will take place on May 6, 2012, to celebrate LGBT families across the world. The dramatic increase in the numbers of LGBT people who choose to raise children is a global phenomenon. The movement for equal treatment of our families took another significant step forward with the first ever International Symposium of LGBT Family Organizations which took place in Florida in July, 2011. The symposium was part of an effort to increase international cooperation among GLBT family organizations worldwide, led by Family Equality Council, America’s foremost advocate for LGBT families, the Network of European LGBT Families Associations (NELFA) and the Canadian LGBT Parenting Network based in Toronto.
