We define the term “LGBT Families” as a family in which at least one parent self-identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
The children in these families may issue from previous, heterosexual relationships or may be born into the lesbian or gay relationship, or adopted or taken in as foster children. If the family includes a transgender parent, the family may have been started before or after that parent’s coming out.
The term “LGBT Families” also references the international gay/lesbian symbol of the rainbow flag, which in many cultures the world over connotes tolerance, diversity and hope.
Imagine if your Parents weren't legally recognised in most countries of the european union...
Same-sex families often stop being considered a family as soon as they set foot in a different country in the European Union - because the EU lacks a general legal framework to recognise these couples and their children across borders.
We call on you to address this situation and ensure mutual recognition of same-sex families, wherever they are.
