“Different Families – Same Schools”
European Conference for Rainbow Families 2014 in Germany, Cologne
! SAVE-THE-DATE: 1st - 4th of May 2014 !

Lesbian and Gay Association in Germany (LSVD), Network of European LGBT Families Associations (NELFA), Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation (FES) supported by the Ministry for Family, Elderly People, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ)


Considering the increasing heterogeneity of our society, schools play an important role in communicating the diversity of lifestyles and family forms and in fighting discriminatory attitudes. What do children from rainbow families experience in European schools? Which paths are chosen in the various countries in order to support the visibility and acceptance of rainbow families in the daily life in schools? What can we learn from our neighboring countries? How can we support each other across countries in fostering diversity in Europe’s schools on a long-term basis? 

These questions are at the core of the third European Conference for Rainbow Families, which will take place in Cologne from May, 1 – 4, 2014. Applying the slogan “Different Families – Same Schools” the conference will bring together around 300 lesbian mothers, gay fathers and children from different European countries. There will be simultaneous translations in German and English.

In addition to the main topic the participants have the opportunity to take part in various workshops that focus on current issues and challenges of rainbow families (e.g. parental roles, how to take care of the relationship, strengthening the children, homosexuality and the church, etc.).

On the occasion of the worldwide “International Family Equality Day” there will be a family celebration as a symbol of solidarity and for the equality of rainbow families.
