Mission

We believe that the most important thing for a child is to grow up surrounded by love.

That the definition of family is more colourful than we would sometimes think.

That family is family, even if the parents happen to be of the same sex.

The only important thing is that they are people.
Be open and listen to the rainbow parents.

Family

The concept of marriage and family has been changing for thousands of years.
Although the idealised model is two parents of different sexes and their children, there are other kinds of families.

Nowadays more and more same-sex couples decide to raise children or plan to do so in the near future, but in the eyes of the law, only the adoptive or biological parent is considered a legal parent. The other member of the couple cannot to adopt their partner’s child that they are raising together.

The scientific consensus is that parents’ sexual orientation does not negatively affect child development, however, since one of the parents has no parental rights, the child’s interest is violated.

Family is family, a child is a child, and all children have to be granted equal rights.

Parents

Not only heterosexual couples would like to marry or start a family: more and more LGBTQI people would too. Unfortunately, even more people form an opinion without a deeper understanding of the topic. We talked to gay and lesbian parents who were willing to answer questions from people on the web about having and raising children.

Experts

We also talked to experts in sociology, psychology and child education to help give people an overview of the situation of rainbow families in Hungary, the controversial topic of having children, its psychological characteristics and the main points of international studies.
