Rainbow Families is a community group created by and for LGBTQ families (this is inclusive of LGBTQ parents and their children, as well as LGBTQ children and their parents), Allies, prospective parents, and all other supporters, regardless of family size, ethnicity, culture, faith, or income level. Rainbow Families strives to cultivate and promote a healthy and strong community through maintaining an active online community, holding at least one “Family Fun” event per month, and creating a community resource pamphlet for LGBTQ parents within Tucson and those moving to the area. Rainbow Families also partners with COLAGE, Children Of Lesbians And Gays Everywhere, which is a national organization. Rainbow Families participate in panels, trainings, and discussions for classes, agencies, and various groups to increase the knowledge, understanding, and visibility of the LGBTQ family units. It is a goal of Rainbow Families to mobilize community members to represent themselves, to work with Foster Care/Adoption agencies to recruit parents from within the LGBTQ community, and to work with state representatives to introduce legislation to legalize second parent adoption within the sate of Arizona.
