CHOSEN FAMILY LAW CENTER (CFLC) and The FMs collaborated to make this AMAZING Pride Month video fundraising project based on the “Time Warp” from Rocky Horror Picture Show!This video celebrates & raises awareness about the beauty of family in all its forms, to support CFLC’s nonprofit legal services work for LGBTQIA, polyamorous, platonic, and non-nuclear families.Our definition of Family can include anything you want it to mean: it could be one single person and their pet, a couple, you and your grandma, five people with whom you live, your platonic partners, your polyamorous triad or quad, your pandemic pod, you as a single parent with your kid - any form of family.This pride we are celebrating family diversity, including polyamorous families, platonic partners, and chosen family!

Who got you through the pandemic and was there for you? Let’s celebrate that type of family by providing them with legislative advocacy for their rights and free legal paperwork to keep their family protected!

We are a nonprofit organization providing free legal support services for LGBTQIA, polyamorous, and other underserved families, public education on these family forms, and training for professionals to support these communities with dignity. 

We support clients including:

  • Same-sex parents with Adoption & Assisted Reproductive Technology
  • Polyamorous & Multi-Parent Families
  • Platonic Co-Parents
  • Trans & Gender Non-Conforming Clients with ID Document Support
  • Caretakers of Disabled Partners & Parents
  • LGBTQIA Immigrants and Asylees with Adjustment of Status 

If we meet our $7,000 fundraising goal by the end of June, funds will be matched and $14,000 will go directly to serving our clients who otherwise cannot afford legal representation. Every dollar counts!

With each dollar donated we are one step closer to a world where all LGBTQIA+ people feel supported within our legal system, including polyamorous, platonic, chosen, & non-nuclear families that make up the rainbow of ways that queer people form family. CFLC supports and empowers all of these LGBTQIA+ Families by providing direct legal services to low-income members of these families to create family agreements that give them stability and protection. In addition to direct services, CFLC is a founding member of polyamorylegal.org which advocates for model ordinances for multi-partner domestic partnerships for polyamorous partners, blended families, and platonic partnerships that have passed in several MA cities with more to come. CFLC is proud to serve and celebrate the diversity of our community by supporting LGBTQIA+ families. 

As a 501c3, all donations to us are tax-deductible.
