Rainbow Family Tree

tell your story - change the world!

The Rainbow Family Tree...

Rainbow Family Tree is a space for sharing our stories of life, love, family and loss… feel free to explore the parameters of your identity, GLBTQIS ‘other’ or ‘ally’… or abandon all socially imposed labels and make up your own!

We're here to test whether challenging assumptions about gender, sexuality, identity and family can actually contribute to social change? Idealistic as it may sound, the theory is that collectively our stories can make a difference! This theory is also being explored in a PHD research project that you can read more about in the FAQs.

So, have a climb around the branches... offer feedback to storytellers or learn how to make your own… Participate in discussions on creative process, tech issues, the research project or the educational DVD... and invite your friends to join us!
