What we do

Family Support

For over twenty years, Our Family Coalition has provided community-building and support for LGBTQ+ families with children, prospective parents, youth, allies, community partners, and volunteers.

We offer a wide range of programming – 250-300 events annually – including informational workshops, peer- and professional-led support groups, field trip outings, seasonal celebrations, informal meet-ups, play groups, and more in both San Francisco and the East Bay.



Schools Work

Our Family Coalition’s Education Team works with families, teachers, administrators, and child-serving professionals to support their school communities and agencies in becoming more welcoming of LGBTQ+ families, children, and our allies.

We also work with California K-12 public school communities and education professionals as they adopt and teach the new LGBTQ-inclusive history and social science curriculum.




Over more than 25 years, we have generated or curated a wealth of information about LGBTQ+ family-building, support and advocacy for our families, resources for school communities, and more.

We keep a list of referrals to San Francisco Bay Area LGBTQ+ agencies and organizations offering support to the full and expanding spectrum of LGBTQ+ families and children.

In addition to infographics and "white papers," our publications include archival records of past print and electronic newsletters and community emails.

Take Action


California has made history by establishing a Reparations Task Force. We're calling on elected officials to vigorously support it, at every opportunity, until the work is done.

Paid leave equity


Help ensure California's paid leave laws recognize your chosen family. The bill's now in the State Senate and can use your support. Do you have a story to share?

The Equality Act
