A reader-focused event, GRL’s intent is to bring together the people who create and celebrate LGBT romance for a one-of-a-kind, must-attend gathering of dynamic, informal, and diverse fun. Because the retreat rotates to a new city each year, the organizers are able to keep things fresh with custom events while still maintaining a spirit of familiarity and family. From raucous parties to mellow tête á têtes, GRL is the place to connect with old friends and find family you didn’t know you had. This is the must-attend event for all who enjoy creating, reading, and publishing gay romance. Registration is limited to a maximum of 400 people so don’t delay. We hope to see you in Atlanta!


Greenberg Adoption: The Law Offices of Clifford L. Greenberg

Since then, we have helped more than 4,000 New York families become enriched and whole through the adoption process. Our founding attorney Clifford Greenberg is committed to helping clients adopt the children they love. In fact, he has devoted his entire legal career working with children and families.

He also has extensive experience providing counsel to numerous agencies and adoptive parents. Mr. Greenberg’s passion to guide families through the adoption process remains the backbone of our law firm. At Greenberg Adoption, we believe that a couple’s right to form a family through an adoption should not be inhibited by their sexual preference.

He recently wrote Living the Dream with Mommy and Mama, a book celebrating the loving relationship between a same-sex couple and their daughter and Freedom For Us All, a story about the battle for same-sex marriage.
