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 was 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 featured representatives from public and private schools that cover all ages and grades as well as information on homeschooling, plus a representative from the Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia.

This free event was well attended and intended for LGBTQ parents, prospective parents, LGBTQ kids and youth as well as allies.

Here are photos from the event.

We published an accompanying school fair booklet that we handed out in print at the event and is available for download as a PDF here. The booklet includes a list of participating schools and a spreadsheet showing each school’s LGBTQ-related policies, trainings, etc..

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 was Rachelle Smith and her Speaking OUT! Queer Youth in Focus photography book.
