Interview with Gay Star News, IDAHOT committee member Joel Bedos and Caroline Ausserer, of IFED and the Network of European LGBTIQ* Families Associations (NELFA)
Regardless of different legal, political and social circumstances around the world, the dramatic increase in the numbers of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ*) people choosing to raise children is a global phenomenon.
In 2017, activists are invited to celebrate families in all their forms. We are bringing you here a list of films and documentaries in which family relationships are a major component. We hope they can provide amazing contributions to your IFED-IDAHOT events. Do you want to suggest additional items? Write us!
The first IFED was launched in 2012 as a sign of solidarity and pride to promote equality for all families. Participation is steadily increasing: this year in 2016, six more countries joined the ‘IFED family’: Ecuador, Norway, Russia, South Africa, Sweden and Venezuela.
