My beautiful partner and I love adventuring. We go away several times a year, often to places that are quite gay unfriendly and we deal with it. We’re now planning a family and have been talking a lot about adventuring with kids. We’ve really valued the posts on Offbeat Families about travelling with kids and have felt inspired to keep an open but optimistic mind about going abroad with our future family.
However, we’ve been talking a lot about whether we would continue to visit places where the law isn’t on our side about being two mums. We feel strongly that we don’t want to lie in front of our kids about our relationship. And we’re also concerned about safety and the legalities of going to a country that won’t recognise us both as parents. However we also want our future children to be exposed to the diversity of cultures that we’ve both been lucky enough to experience over our lives, including living abroad.
So my question is: Have any other queer parents had experiences of travelling/living abroad with their kids? What was it like? — Sarah
