In honor of the launch of the Leon County Domestic Partnership Registry on May 1st, we asked you to SHARE YOUR LOVE! Committed couples interested in registering as domestic partners shared the story of their partnership in a short essay that we’d like you to judge.
From now through April 30th, we need your help to choose a couple to win a “staycation” prize package valued at nearly $500 to honor their big day! The winning couple will be honored at a Domestic Partnership Registry Celebration Party on May 1st.

Members of the Tallahassee community are celebrating this year’s PRIDEFEST festival being held April 14 – 20. The event – themed “Celebrate Pride in US” – is sponsored by The Family Tree Community Center and various local individuals, organizations and businesses, including Big Bend Cares, Rainbow eBooks.com, Conn & Associates Architects, Mary L. Wakeman Attorney at Law, Gentle Shepherd Metropolitan Community Church, United Church in Tallahassee, Equality Florida, Florida Blue, and many more.
The Family Tree is once again proud to participate in the Springtime Tallahassee parade, one of the largest and most celebrated parades in the southeast! Springtime Tallahassee begins at 9am on Saturday, April 6th, with the Jubilee in the Park event featuring music, food, a children’s park, arts, crafts, vendors, and The Family Tree’s information booth.
Then, at 10:30am, join us as we “Come Together” for the 45th annual Springtime Tallahassee grand parade that includes 100 colorful floats, marching bands, dance groups, and much more. The Family Tree is proud to host a walking unit in this year’s parade with the goal of bringing positive visibility to Tallahassee’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.
Individuals desiring to walk along with us are asked to wear a PRIDE-related shirt and must be onsite no later than 10am. The walking unit will meet and begin in front of the Wells Fargo bank (next to Mockingbird Cafe) on North Monroe Street. The parade will end at the Civic Center. Colorful clothing, headdresses, feather boas, and flags are encouraged if you plan to walk. If you are interested in participating in the parade or if you have any questions, contact Steven Hall at email@example.com.
