Hi everyone, my partner and I live in Walthamstow and have a 3 month old daughter. Would be great to meet up - this thread isn't very recent so not sure if any of you are still around? If anyone is I'm happy to try and coordinate something.

I'm a third year student studying at Southampton University and i'm currently writing my dissertation on gay and lesbian parents and their experiences. I'm currently looking for anyone that might be interested in being interviewed? All interviews are anonymous, confidential and can be done over the phone, on skype or face to face (should only take up about 30 minutes of your time). Please message me if anyone is interested or has any questions!

ELOP in Walthamstow do an LGBT parents drop in play session every week which was a great way to meet other similar families. Mine are older now, but I still know some of those families.

Big Fish Little Fish Family Rave - Sun Oct 19th with the Readers Wifes (Duckie) and Out With The Family in Hackney Wick.

Hi everyone - I'm Natasha from Big Fish Little Fish - we hold fantastic parties where parents and children enjoy dancing, craft, play and meeting other fun-loving families in a non-judgemental, friendly and supportive environment.
At our upcoming rave at Shapes (117 Wallis Rd, Hackney Wick, E9 5LN) on the 19th Oct from 2pm until 4.30pm our DJs are the Readers Wifes - legendary for their brilliant club, Duckie ( at the Vauxhall Tavern. We're thrilled to be welcoming our friends from Out with the Family who organise great days out for LGBT parents and their straight allies.

We're offering a 20% discount to people who hear about the party via OWTF and we'd like to extend that offer to members of this group. All you have to do is email and mention OWTF - prices are £7.20 for adults, £4.10 for walking children and pre-walking infants go free - she'll explain how to pay.

The dancefloor is lots of fun for the younger ravers with bubble machines, glitter cannons, swirly coloured lights and a giant parachute dance.
There's a play area with tents and tunnels, a babies-only safe space with soft mats, ball pool and beanbags, a large craft area managed by Captain Cookie where older children can make things to fit with the Halloween dressing-up theme, a giant colouring-in mural, play-doh table and loads of freebies - glowsticks, transfer tattoos and Happy Monkey smoothies and Bear nibbles to take home.

We've got a licensed bar, there's hot food and kids snacks on sale, a ground-floor secure buggy park and baby changing facilities. Sound levels are set lower than at normal clubs - max volume is 85db.
Hope to see you there - it's going to be brilliant.
