International Family Equality Day 2013, 5th of May

NELFA PRESS RELEASE - The IFED 2012 Report is out!
28th of January 2013



Celebrating the Rainbow of families in our World!

Regardless of different legal, political and social circumstances around the world, the dramatic increase in the numbers of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) people choosing to raise children is a global phenomenon. The International Family Equality Day (IFED) was launched as a sign of solidarity and strength and to promote equality for all families. On 6 May 2012, several events were held throughout Europe, Canada and the U.S. Families, friends, interested parties, experts from government agencies and other institutions as well as politicians and representatives of all parties were invited to celebrate the rainbow of families in our world. This annual report introduces the organizations involved in IFED as well as the work done by the IFED Committee, and highlights the activities that were held in the different countries to celebrate this day. The annual report aims to serve as an inspiration for the Second International Family Equality Day, which will take place 5 May 2013. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the countless activists who tirelessly champion the visibility and equality of rainbow families around the world!

Goals & Future Projects
The IFED Committee encourages families to join the IFED network by starting their own traditions in celebration of their family pride and ongoing efforts for full family equality. To that end, the Committee strives to identify and connect existing LGBTQ family organizations worldwide.

Date: Sunday, 5 May 2013
Worldwide, International Family Equality Day
All countries that have held events to celebrate the IFED 2012 will do so again in 2013.
Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Greece, Israel, Lithuania, Spain, Switzerland and USA are all already planing their IFED 2013 events.
Make sure to join us next year by organizing your own event!


If 5 May doesn't work in your country, no problem - simply choose a day near this date to celebrate!

Special Thanks
Thank you to all the people who are actively involved in bringing visibility to the diversity
of family forms in society, to all who are prepared to stand up for the rights of every
one of these diverse families.
Thank you especially to all those families, who exemplify rainbow familes as part of the
existing diversity through being visible.
