School Fair for LGBTQ Communities

Dates: 04/29/2017 Dates: 04/29/2017 Times: 12:00 - 14:00 Location: William Way LGBT Center

Philadelphia Family Pride is proud to present a School Fair for LGBTQ Communities (and Allies!) on Saturday, April 29th from 12-2pm at the William Way LGBT Center at 1315 Spruce Street in Center City Philadelphia. This event will feature representatives from public and private schools that cover all ages and grades as well as information on homeschooling as well as a representative from the Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia.

The event is free and intended for LGBTQ parents, prospective parents, LGBTQ kids and youth as well as allies.

For those bringing small children with them, we will have little kid activities and toys in the large exhibitor space, but are unable to provide supervised child care. Healthy snacks will also be available.

RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook or get your free tickets here for this drop-in event.

The deadline to register a school or homeschool program as a sponsor was April 15. If your school hasn’t registered and wants to inquire about last minute table availability, please email PFP Director Stephanie Haynes.

We are publishing an accompanying school fair booklet that will be available at the event, for download on our web site, and in print form at the Philly Pride Festival in June.

Many thanks to our community partners the William Way LGBT Community Center and Equality Pennsylvania and media partner Philadelphia Gay News for supporting this event.

Also present will be Rachelle Schneider and her Speaking OUT! Queer Youth in Focus photography exhibit and book signing.
