Parenting While Queer: 2SLGBTQ+ Parents & Allies Take Action

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Discovery Center, The Family Court Report, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Employee Resource Groups: Out for Good and Working Parents & Caregivers present a panel discussion bringing together parents from across the 2SLGBTQ+ spectrum to explore how definitions of family are evolving. The event is connected with the Discovery Center's exhibition, "Designing Motherhood: Things that Make and Break Our Births," and will delve into the unique family challenges for LGBTQ+ caregivers and children, visibility for birthing dads and transgender parents, and critical conversations about identity and contemporary life.

Kristin Leong, M.Ed, founder of The Family Court Report

Ari Robbins Greene, proud dad to three children

Jessi Allen-Garibaldi, a Two spirit (TS-twin spirit), Afro-Indigenous (Blackfoot), youth, family, and community educator and first time parent

Jess T. Dugan, an American-born artist whose creative practice centers around an exploration of identity—particularly gender and sexuality— through photography, video, and writing
