Diverse Dads – Fathers of the Future

Diverse Dads – Fathers of the Future

A quick reminder to join gay disabled comedian Philip Patston on tomorrow night (Tuesday 2 September) as he delves into the experience of the men we may not always think of as fathers — disabled and gay dads.

In a light and informal panel discussion, Philip will introduce men with alternative and important, yet surprisingly common, perspectives on fathering. They will share their highs and lows, joys and frustrations as disabled and gay fathers.

Tuesday 2 September, 7.30—9.00pm at Kelston Community Centre Cnr Great North and Awaroa Rds, Kelston

NO CHARGE FOR ENTRY. BOOKINGS NOT REQUIRED. ACCESSIBLE VENUE. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU REQUIRE SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER OR OTHER SUPPORT.

Diverse Dads is part of Waitakere City's Focus on Fathering Week.
