Blogging for LGBT Families

How it works - From Dana at Mombian:

Blog on a topic related to LGBT families on or before June 1, 2009.
Complete the form at Mombian to submit your entry.
I'll compile the posts and highlight them at Mombian on June 1. Please visit to read the stories and insights of the LGBT community and allies.
To be eligible for the Family Week or book drawings, you must leave a valid e-mail address. Employees of FEC and paying advertisers on Mombian are ineligible.
Any blogger who wants to support LGBT families is welcome, LGBT or not, parent or not. I encourage those who don’t usually post about LGBT families or LGBT issues, as well as those for whom every day is Blogging for LGBT Families Day. Give it a spin based on your usual blog topics. There’s no set formula or format. Photos and videos are also welcome.

Please also download a banner and promote the event on your site, Facebook, Twitter, etc. The more people who participate, the more impact our voices will have.

So, please blog for LGBT families today and send your URL to Dana. In the wake of the Prop 8 ruling, LGBT families need all of our support and encouragement.

What else to do? Read books to your children about LGBT families. Or, sign a petition to repeal Prop 8. Or, find out more about Georgia's MEGA Family Project and work on starting a similar program in your area.

I wish my gay friends would do this, too, but again, they are silent...
