Welcoming all COLAGErs into our community with care and intention. 

Do you have LGBTQ+ parents? Welcome to the COLAGE community! We are so excited to get to know you! In the COLAGE Connect program, you will get to meet people who share similar experiences with you – the first being one of our community members who will help guide you through our organization!

To get started, fill out this form that walks you through the steps below!

Step One

Select the identities that are applicable to you and tell us a little bit about what you are looking for by connecting with us!

Step Two

Someone who shares the identities you selected will reach out to you within 1-2 weeks to schedule a 1:1 conversation where you will both get to know each other better. You can also use this space to discuss whatever you write on the form and anything queerspawn-related that is on your mind!

Step Three

Your facilitator will help get you connected to the community in the capacity that you want! For example, you can opt-in to more 1:1 conversations, you can join us as a volunteer, you can organize a casual meet-up in your area, or you can join a support group.
