Celebrate National Families Week with Jasper Peach, author of You’ll be a Wonderful Parent, a practical guide for LGBTIGA+ families.

Becoming a parent is already a challenging time, even more so if you don’t see yourself reflected in mainstream parenting resources, culture or even language. But alphabet soup families are also in the unique position of being able to intentionally build their own family structure and create an environment of huge love and belonging for their children. This little book holds the reader’s hand through the journeys of both birth and non-birth parents, with advice on everything from dealing with other’s definitions of your family, to finding the right medical care and communities, and of course making sure that you take a lot of naps before the baby is born.

This is a family friendly event and little ones are very welcome! Join us for a family dance party at 1.30pm. Kids craft and activities will be available in the Town Hall Atrium during the talk from 2 -3 pm.
