Events

We hope to see you at our events. Each month we host a New Member Orientation on the second Sunday of each month at 11:00 am. This is a support-style group for gay dads and prospective dads to share their experiences forming families.

Always a mix of current and future parents, this is a great way to get answers to your questions about fostering, adoption, surrogacy and co-parenting. Much of the conversation is about logistics--from agencies, attorneys, and doctors to play groups, pre-schools, and pediatricians. The payoff is when repeat visitors to this group come with their new arrivals--the children they have worked so hard to get.

Quarterly (see below), we have a pot luck meal at Noon. Many longer-term members will come with their kids, so bring a dish to serve eight (no desserts, please). After the meal, we head out to the park to play with the kids. This pot luck is a perfect time for prospective dads to meet others who have traveled their path.

We often pair the pot luck meals with panel discussions on topics of interest, such as:

  • Surrogacy, Fostering & Adoption
  • Legal Issues for Gay Dads
  • Finances: How to Plan or the Future
  • Girl Stuff 101: Raising our daughters

In June, we march in the Christopher Street West (Pride) parade, followed the next week by our annual father's Day Brunch at The Abbey in West Hollywood. We hope you can join us throughout the year!
