Mombian declared June 1st as Blogging for LGBT Families Day!
Why June 1st? This date falls exactly between Mother's Day and Father's Day. As such, it honors mothers and fathers equally, but also conveys that not all families fit into the traditional structure of one mother and one father. June 1st is also the start of Gay Pride Month.
I am retro-blogging because I missed the actual day (i.e. I am WRITING this on June 2nd but POSTING on June 1st. Cool, eh? Too bad we can only retro-blog, not pre-blog and see how the stock market is doing!).
In any case, the event was a resounding success!
Here is a list of bloggers who participated!
Lesbiandad has a great post in honor of the day.
Mombian also posted some information about Same-Sex Parents, including a study on the cost of marriage inequality to children and their same-sex parents by the Human Rights Campaign.
In honor of the day, I will re-post a story that I wrote titled "Girls Can't Marry Other Girls" which is forthcoming in the Journal of Feminist Family Therapy.
