NELFA press release 7 September 2018


Rainbow families in Europe: A new home on the internet! NELFA proudly presents its website relaunch and invites you to visit

The Network of European LGBTIQ* Families Associations, NELFA, just published its new online presence. At you will find a comprehensive collection of our work, recent information about rainbow families and their allies: We report on current legislative changes, struggles of LGBTIQ* parents and their children, we share best practice examples and important campaigns. We show a range of pictures, presentations and press releases, gather scientific research and give insights into the work of our member organisations.

NELFA-President Dominique Boren says, “This is the result of vigorous efforts after our first website was hacked. For a long time, we were just able to establish a temporary offer. Now, we have a professional website again – like it is expected from us as a European umbrella organisation. Not only do we offer fast and fleeting posts on social media, but also particularly sustainable information about and for LGBTIQ* parents (to-be) and their children. The aim is to create the leading online portal for the rainbow families’ movement in Europe.

NELFA-Secretary (media team), Björn Sieverding, adds, “The website is a starting point, but we have already envisaged greater plans – for example a more interactive online offer. Our members often ask for common meetings, an exchange programme and – for example – a sort of Airbnb for rainbow families. In any case, we would be glad to encourage a closer communication among each other. We are delighted to receive good ideas!

NELFA wants to thank in particular graphic designer Francesca Silvestri for her great efforts to build up the website! For any further comments – please use our Email
