As Monica Moran and Alma Garcia played with their daughter Sarayu at W.J. Thomas Splash Park on a hot July day, they said they were glad other LGBT families were out in the sun with them.
The couple brought their daughter to the splash park for an outing with the local LGBT family group Rainbow Roundup, a social Facebook group.
Moran and Garcia heard about the group last year and have enjoyed surrounding 3-year-old Sarayu with other children that have two same-sex parents.
“I think the best thing about it is to give her an opportunity to see other families that look like hers and just to get to meet other families as well,” Moran said. “It’s kind of hard to have venues where you can just hang out with GLBT families.”
