"The most amazing conference for LGBT families!"

The MEGA Family Project is proud to announce the 4th Annual MEGA Family Conference for the LGBT community! This conference is the only of its kind in the Southeast, and will be a great opportunity for LGBT parents, couples, prospective parents, families, their children, friends, educators and community members to come together to discuss LGBT family issues.

The 4th Annual MEGA Family Conference will host multiple topics that attendees can choose from. Each conference hour attendees will have the option of choosing which of the many workshop topics they would like to attend depending on their interests. We have done our best to try to offer something for everyone.

Children's Programs

Kids 9 and Older:

For our older kids, we will offer some unique programming to make it a fun day for them and to help them explore what it means to be a part of an LGBT family with other kids from families like theirs.

Kid's Camp (ages 3-8)

We will offer special fun programming for our children ages 3 to 8. You must pre-register for Kid's Camp. We'll have arts and crafts, special presentations, and play ground time!

 

Childcare is available for younger children!

For our infants and toddlers, we will have caregivers who can take care of their special needs. You must pre-register your child for childcare so we can ensure we have enough providers.

There is no cost for babies who will be in their parent's care the entire conference. If you would like to leave your infant in childcare, please register them for childcare so we can have enough childcare workers. Please bring food for them as we will not have anything available suitable for very young children.

$25 Per Adult for the most amazing conference you will ever attend!

$15 Per Child (for children's programs, childcare and food)
