As LGBTQ+ people, what does it mean and take for us to make a family? LGBTQ+ and allied people all over the world grapple with our understanding and manifestations of family and parenting. In this virtual conversation, the Duke LGBTQ+ Network and colleagues discuss the joys, social, medical, legal, and financial challenges, and resilience involved in forming, nurturing, and protecting our families. All LGBTQ+ and allied Duke community members and friends are welcome to join this intimate and informational virtual conversation.

Be Proud, Be Forever Duke!
