Queer Birth Project offers educational trainings, workshops, lectures and consultations on LGBTQ  family-building and parenting. We assist organizations hoping to improve accessibility and quality of services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer parents and their children in Minnesota and beyond.
We have workshops that are individualized to meet the needs of different groups of professionals. Our approach in these trainings emphasizes participation, reflection, and interactive learning. We often incorporate the findings of community-based research.
