With Pride Month in it’s last two days of celebration, TACT staff and LGBTIQA+ foster carers are getting ready to staff stands at Bournemouth’s Bourne Free Pride, Meyrick Park on 8th July and Liverpool Pride, Mann Island on 29th July, in a continued effort to share our pride in LGBTIQA+ fostering.
This is an opportunity to find out first hand from our LGBTIQA+ foster carers about their experiences of fostering with TACT and in making a difference in the lives of children and young people in care.
TACT welcomes the LGBTIQA+ community to find out more and be encouraged by TACT’s support in addressing the myth’s and facts about LGBTIQA+ fostering:
MYTH: LGBTQ+ couples aren’t eligible to foster.
FACT: Your sexual and/or gender identity has absolutely nothing to do with your suitability to foster.
MYTH: Children need equal parenting from both genders to best develop and thrive.
FACT: There is absolutely no evidence that gendered parenting benefits children whatsoever.
