The LGBTQ+ centre of the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality, the main organiser of the Tel Aviv Pride Parade, has launched its new Family Centre, which offers guidance to families in the city’s LGBTQ+ community and addresses a variety of aspects of LGBTQ+ family life. 

The new Family Centre offers a social environment supporting the LGBTQ+ community: from exploring options on how to have children, to growing relationships, raising children and everyday family life, the centre aims at assisting families throughout significant chapters in life.

In addition to workshops, activities, and events, the new centre offers matchmaking opportunities, guidance groups for parents with transgender children, couple and family therapy, children activities and legal counselling led by Attorney Michal Eden, a former Tel Aviv-Yafo Councilwoman who specialises in LGBTQ+ rights in Israel.          

Avihoo Mizan, Director of the Tel Aviv LGBTQ+ Centre, said: “We are proud to offer a variety of services for LGBTQ+ families, all under one roof. The family centre is a significant new pillar to the exceptional support that the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality is offering to the city’s LGBTQ community. 

“The centre will enable thousands of families to find the social support system that will help them feel at home for the first time. The centre offers a large pool of services, workshops, events and ongoing activities that will keep growing over the coming months and years. We invite all families of the LGBTQ+ community to come visit us and be part of our community.”
