Hello!

 

My partner and I just moved to Glendale/Eagle Rock with our 9 month old son. We don't know too many people in the area, and even fewer with kids, and even fewer LGBT families with kids!

 

Does anyone know of any meet up groups in Northeast Los Angeles where our family would feel comfortable? I'm adjusting to life as a stay-at-home mom and would really like to have more people to socialize with during the day.

 

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Hey mama! Welcome to LA. I don't have any meetups to recommend, but wanted to welcome you regardless. We are on the Westside of LA, in Venice. In the time I've been pregnant here I've noticed a nearly infinite amount of meetups, so I hope you'll be able to find something that suits your fam. :)

hi. i'm jamie, in glassell park. i'm queer & hope to be pregnant soon, & am also trying to find a like-minded parents community. to find some fellow queer parents would be especially cool! here's where i've been compiling some links & talking about starting up a meetup group since they're kinda lacking:

and, btw, i finally made that meetup group i've been saying i'm going to start. the link is listed on the other thread i linked to, but it wouldn't update this thread, so you probably wouldn't know it unless you happen to be following that thread, so i thought i would go ahead and post it here, too.

No suggestions but I do regularly see lgbt families at west Hollywood park. The park and library are pleasant and near a lot of shopping so maybe it could be part of a routine. And they have a really nice gated baby play area.
