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!
Select the identities that are applicable to you and tell us a little bit about what you are looking for by connecting with us!
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!
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.
Right now, COLAGE has three active affinity groups: People with Trans Parents, Retro COLAGErs, and Adult COLAGErs. Please read the description below to see if these are the right fit for you! Other groups such as Adopted COLAGErs, My Parent Came Out, COLAGErs Born Through Assisted Reproduction, COLAGErs of Color, COLAGErs with Disabilities, and Second Generation COLAGErs primarily engage via Discord. If you identify as any of the categories listed, and want to connect with others who share similar experiences, please fill out the COLAGE Connect form above. If you generally want to connect with other queerspawn, join our Discord below! For those age 8 to 13, please watch the Parent FAQ with your parent below to access our Discord.
People with Trans Parents
Do you have one or more trans or nonbinary parent or caregiver? People with trans parents are the fastest growing group of COLAGErs – you are not alone! If you are 8 years old or older, join our facilitators, Maria, Olivia, and Annastasia bi-monthly to talk about what it’s like to be a person with a trans parent. Typically, we have break out groups for youth and adults.
If you are looking to make a long-lasting connection with someone who also has a trans or nonbinary parent, fill out the penpal form below!
This space is for anyone 18 and up who has one or more LGBTQ+ parent/caregiver. Come hang with our National Program Director, Angel, and chat about what it’s like to be an adult COLAGEr! We will get to know each other, play games, and have the option of diving deep into our stories!
Do you want to host an in-person Adult COLAGErs meet-up?
This space is for anyone who has one or more LGBTQ+ parent/caregiver and was born pre-1980. Join our facilitators, Lisa, Cheryl, and Julie to talk about issues specific to Retro COLAGErs and to build community with each other!
