In an article titled ‘Pride beyond parades: How the LGBTQ celebration is enjoyed around the US’, journalist Elizabeth Wallace explores alternative Pride events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. And she mentioned the Perinatal Wellness Center. She writes:

Queer family portrait exhibit, San Francisco, California, May-June

“There's definitely a pull for more family-focused activities leading up to Pride weekend” in the Bay Area, says Meghan Lewis, founder of the Oakland-based LGBTQ Perinatal Wellness Center.

So this year the wellness collaborative will have multiple events on the roster. From May through June, visitors can view a collection of family portraits shot by queer local photographers — and maybe find someone to capture their own families on film — at Natural Resources in San Francisco; the reception will open around International Family Equality Day in early May.

On June 21, the center partners with a Bay Area PFLAG chapter for a queer family craft-making event at the Oakland Museum of CA in conjunction with the museum's exhibit "Queer California: Untold Stories," on display till August 11. The center is also hosting a Bi Parents Potluck Brunch in June. Check the wellness center site closer to May for more details and event info.”
