I am honored to announce that Mombian has just been nominated for “Outstanding Blog” in the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards. I’m truly flattered, especially since I’m in very good company. The other nominees are The Bilerico Project, The New Civil Rights Movement, Rod 2.0, and Towleroad—all sites and bloggers whom I admire and consider friends. (I’m also a contributor to Bilerico myself, which makes their nomination extra special to me, too.)
I’m also pleased that Mombian made the list even though it covers a niche within a niche, with LGBT parenting being a subset of the broader range of LGBT issues explored by the other sites. It’s an important niche, though—or at least, I like to think so.
Don’t worry—this isn’t one of those blog contests where I’m going to pester you to go vote for me. It’s a judged award, so it’s in the judges’ hands. I do owe you all many thanks, however, for your comments, ideas, and encouragement that have kept me going for almost seven years now. I hope I’ve provided interesting, informative, and inspirational material along the way. We’re all taking this journey together.
