Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere

A program of the Gay and Lesbian Parents Coalition International

last modified September 1, 1996

Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere, is the only organization dedicated to the needs and growth of daughters and sons of lesbians and gay men. Founded in 1988, COLAGE has come to function as the headquarters for an international network of local groups of kids and adults, with a membership approaching two thousand.


Having formerly focused mainly on teenagers, adolescence being the most common age when children experience difficulty around their parent(s) sexual orientation, COLAGE has received many requests from parents to begin programs for younger kids. In May, 1995, the COLAGE Kids Club was born. Targeting children under age twelve, the Kids Club offers members:

COLAGE has started a mailing list for children of lesbians and gays. Gay dads and lesbian moms have mailing lists that are working well, so we thought one for kids would also be good.

It's for any kid who needs to talk, or wants to meet other kids with gay or lesbians parents.

You can ask questions about the list by e-mailing Mike at, or COLAGE at
