A very happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating it today. For my readers outside the U. S., I hope you’re amused by the spectacle of the American part of the blogosphere slowing to a crawl for a day while we gorge ourselves silly. (I posted this in advance so I can keep my day clear for eating pumpkin pie.)
Thanksgiving is, for most Americans, a family holiday. For LGBT people, however, that simple statement can hide layers of meaning. Let us give thanks today, then, for our families by birth and by choice, however we define them.
