From the researcher: Are you a gay adoptive father? Would you like to share your parenting experiences in order to advance understanding and possible support for initiatives that could be developed for other families like yours? I would like your insights as a gay adoptive father and want you to participate in a study examining gay fathers’ experiences with parenting and discrimination and the ways in which fathers remain resilient and strong in the face of challenging experiences.

Join local and national Equality Maryland supporters and staff for a welcoming week long family friendly cruise vacation. Set sail for 7 nights of relaxation -- or choose to partake in the constant Caribbean style party -- while making new friends surrounded by all you can eat buffets and events. Special events and surprises are in store for all Equality Cruise passengers.
Your cruise vacation begins at the Port of Baltimore, where you will board your resort-at-sea, the Carnival Pride. The Pride boasts a full casino, Broadway style theatre, resort style pools, an adults only pool, numerous bars and lounges, a 72-foot water slide, a spa and fitness center, youth designated areas and activities, and much, much more. Your vacation starts with two days at sea before making stops in Port Canaveral (Orlando), Florida and Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas ending with you soaking up the sun on your last day at sea before returning to Baltimore.
Prices start at $537 per person (based on double occupancy), and a $50 refundable deposit is required to hold you space on the trip by July 3rd.
We look forward to having you with us on our Equality Cruise. Feel free to invite your family and friends, and contact us for more information; including if you would like information on sailing with children or with more than two people in your room.
