Re: Gay couple & adopted kids moving to Basel

Hi Catire,

my partner and I have a 2 year old son and another baby on the way! We are entering the phase of the questions... like "so who is my dad?" (we are too ladies). Do you know of a place or group / forum where we can discuss these topics in Basel? All of our friends with families are hetero and our gay friends have no children (yet maybe) so we don't really have an example.

Thanks for your help!


PS: I read through your older posts and I hope you have been finding it ok with schools. So far we are extremely happy and felt no different to any other parents!

Re: Gay couple & adopted kids moving to Basel

You could contact the LGBT community in Switzerland, S Germany and W France on a radius of 50 to 100 KM. There's bound to be something available. If not, you can start your own group. That's what I would do, anyway.

Thanks for the response FunnyBone! I saw there is an upcoming meeting in November and we will try that.

Starting my own group seems the logical step... I just need to find a way to start!

Re: Gay couple & adopted kids moving to Basel

We're also two married ladies in Switzerland, and while we don't have kids -- yet -- we're trying to figure out what kind of options we might have to start a family. I know the answer is "In Switzerland? Not much!" but I would love to hear about the experiences of anyone else on the forum. I know about regenbogen-familien, but it would be really nice to hear from other expats too.

Pepinos, I know we're a bit (okay, a lot) behind in the process, but we'd be interested in that group if you do get around to organizing something. Zurich and Basel are not far apart...
