PFP Neighborhood Potlucks


Philly Family Pride will be holding neighborhood potlucks in and around Philadelphia on the weekend of March 30-31. This is a great chance to meet your LGBTQ parent, grandparent and prospective parent neighbors and for your kids to meet their kids.

This is also a good opportunity for LGBTQ prospective parents to meet and ask questions of the parents in the group. LGBTQ grandparents are also welcome to join in!  

Choose one of the potlucks below and RSVP with the number of adults and number and ages of kids for the address and more info about parking, etc. These events are free and are open to everyone!  

Please bring an entree or appetizer to serve 6 and serving utensils.   Hosts will provide beverages, plates, silverware, etc. and their homes!  

In addition, we’re asking folks to bring gently used adult and children’s books in good condition to donate to Project Home as part of their new enterprise. No very old textbooks, encyclopedias or periodicals. We’ll collect them and take them to the donation drop off center.

E-mail Stephanie Haynes with any questions or to offer your home as a location for this weekend if there’s not one already near you.

Foster Parent Recruitment Event


LGBTQ youth in Philadelphia are in need of LGBTQ and other affirming foster parents… that could be you! If you want to find out more, please come and meet foster agency representatives, get your questions answered and hear from DHS staff, foster parents and youth.

This is an information session only and doesn’t commit you to anything other than finding out more!

We’ll meet at the William Way Center in the Philadelphia Room at 1315 Spruce Street in Center City on Thursday, April 18th from 6-8pm.

This event is co-sponsored with the Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs.

Spring Hike at Schuylkill Center


Get outside for this spring hike at the beautiful Schuylkill Center in Roxborough from 10:30-11:30am on Saturday, May 4th. Look for PFP board member Becca Levin.

From their web site:

Want to get outside but don’t know where to start? Bring your family for a hike and unstructured nature play with representatives from our NaturePHL program. We’ll climb, explore, and learn more about the many health benefits of outdoor activity. Meet us at the Visitor Center and we’ll head out from there.

All ages welcome. No registration required. This event recurs every first Saturday of the month.

This program is part of NaturePHL, a collaborative program with CHOP that helps Philadelphia children and families achieve better health through activity in local parks, trails, and green spaces.

Philly Pride Parade & Festival



Join PFP at 10:30am on Sunday, June 9, 2019 on Locust Street between Broad and 12th Streets to march with PFP in the Philly Pride Parade.

The parade steps off at 11:30am and goes from the Gayborhood in Center City to Penn’s Landing, arriving there at about 1:00pm. The parade route is 1.3 miles and is a slow pace. Families with infants should plan to wear their little ones or use strollers. Those with older kids are free to ride bikes, trikes, scooters, etc. Bonus points for decorating your wheels with rainbow colors!

Wear all your rainbow gear any PFP stuff you have.


At Penn’s Landing, Philly Family Pride will again be sponsoring the Family Zone during the Pride Festival as a place for LGBTQ parents to stop by with their kids.

We’ll have crafts, as well as PFP stuff for sale and a place to rest with the kiddos. You can join PFP, renew your membership or give a donation to support our efforts.

Festival admission is $15/adult. Kids are free. Those who are volunteering at our table will receive a wristband to enter the festival for free or will have their admission reimbursed.

Email Stephanie Haynes at to volunteer or to RSVP for the parade.
