My partner and I and our three kids moved to the Cleveland area in August. We don't have heaps of time to socialize, but would love to spend some time with other gay and lesbian parents in the area. Does anyone know of any such group or any other resource we might find useful?

Try contacting the Center at 216-522-1999, I believe.
They have groups for everything;)
Also, peruse the Chronicle's Resource Directory listings, either online or in the paper. A great place to find groups like that.

The center doesn't have any parenting support group as far as I know but I wish they did. I think one of the most important points that I need to get across to my kids is that while our situation may be different, they are not alone. I want them to know other healthy, happy kids who just happen to have mothers who are lesbians.

I am a 40 yr. old lesbian w/2 children. I was married fo 16 yrs. I have been divorved for 2 yrs and have found a partner that I would like to share the rest of my life with. She has no children. My problem is , ex-husband expressed that either my partner has her own room or he will proceed to take me to court to have them taken away. Help, wish there where someone to talk to who can relate and give insight.. We don't want to wait till the kids are 18 to share our life togather. My children are our top priority.

We are a committed, educated, professional lesbian couple with kids looking for other professional, educated, and committed lesbian couples (with or without kids) to socialize with. We are very down to earth, friendly, open minded, love to entertain (dinner parties, cookouts, etc), and are very interested in finding some quality people to get to know in the area. We are also looking for other lesbian couples who have children so our kids can socialize with other kids with gay parents. We live in a community where we are the ONLY lesbian parents. It would be wonderful for our children to be able to see that there are other children in similar family situations.
If interested, please email us at DJDsurfin@aol.com. Thanks!

I know this posting is really old, but...
I'm (we're) looking for other lesbian moms to socialize with.
We sent the following e-mail, but 2 of the 4 came back undeliverable - anyone interested???
"I'm responding to really old posts on the GPC discussion board... I hope you're still out there... no pun intended
I was married for 14 years, and have 2 wonderful kids. All *ell broke loose when I met Cindy... To make a very long story short, we now live together with my (our) kids, with my ex tolerating the situation
Anyway, we're looking to socialize with other lesbian moms, with and/or without kids in tow. (My boys are 12 and 10, and accepting)

Yes! A friend of mine saw your post and let me know. She knows that I've been hoping to meet other lesbian moms.
My boys are 12 and 13. My daughter is 6.

I am a lesbian w/ 2 children 12 and 17. I am a single parent raising kids, I would love to meet couple are single parents to talk to, get together, cook out, or just hang out with. It has been tough raise kids alone and would help to have a suport group. Also for the kids to let them know there is other kids in the same situation. I would hope to find other moms to hang out with. Any one interested e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks

this is off-topic but it is very important to me (i'm posting this in every forum).
can anyone tell me if there are any gay friendly churches or religious organizations in cleveland area (i have no religious preference). i'm looking to find a new church because my pastor recently preached about the evils of homosexual lifestyle.

A freelance writer friend of mine needs GLBT parents to discuss teen pregnancy and their experiences with it with their child. Anyone here familiar with such a situation or know someone who would be willing to be interviewed (anonymously if necessary)? Write me at email@example.com

Liberation United Church of Christ in Lakewood is predominantly LGBT and we have several families. The kids have Sunday School and we are trying to get some get-togethers going, come and join us!

My partner, our two sons (6 and 3) and I are considering a move to Cleveland.
I am checking out what resources or groups are available for lesbian moms.
Also, we plan to come in in January and visit some schools. We would like to look at housing with a real estate agent. We are interested in Cleveland/Univ./Shaker hts.
Any agent recommendations? Any gay family friendly neighborhood recomendations?
Look forward to hearing from you!

I recommend the lady above look into the Gay and Lesbian Service Center of Cleveland because they can answer all of her questions and make great recommendations.

The family connection is a new group that will probably be a good start for you and your family. email is firstname.lastname@example.org. They have meetings and gatherings that should be fun. Unfortunately my partner and I and 2 daughters haven't attended yet but plan to.
Hope that helps

My partner, 2 young daughters and I live in brunswick. Been there for almost 2 years but not really sure how gay friendly it is. Anyone live nearby with children looking to socialize?

I'm not really sure how to explain this. The woman I'm seeing has a four year old daughter. It's been quite tough for the both of us. Me, because I'm not used to children on a constant basis, her, because she's just "coming out" and desires the freedom that she'll never have. She feels like an awful mother for wanting to have her own space and trying to make time for me. She's getting depressed and I'm clueless how to help her. We both feel very alone because we don't know anyone that is in the same situation. Are there any support groups out there for lesbian mothers? I want her to be happy and for her to know that she's not the only one that struggles with being a "single", lesbian mother. If anyone has any thoughts, please let me know. I'm at a loss as to how to help her.
