I can’t believe it’s been a whole week since Blogging for LGBT Families Day. I’ve finally read through all the posts, and am more amazed than ever at the diversity, strength, and love of our families. I know that a U.S.-based site like Mombian is bound to attract mostly U.S.-based visitors, so I’m especially pleased to see folks from non-U.S. countries who have found their way here—thanks for letting the rest of us travel a bit (albeit virtually) into your countries and lives:
- Australia: Mytwomums The Journey has begun…
- Australia: Work, Love and Play The Queer Reality of Guilt
- Canada: Mama Non Grata Blogging for LGBT Families Day
- Canada: Mondays with Mac Marriage (things I hope for my son)
- Chile: Más Mamás Seremos tres
- Germany: Operación Botones Blogging for LGBT Families Day 2012
- India: Just One Out of Seven Billion Same, Same, but Different
- U.K.: Gayby Journey Where is my saliva sample?
- U.K.: Gay Adoption Blog Daddy, daddy, puss is dead! Waah!
Apologies if I missed anyone; please leave a comment if so!
I’m also pleased that this year’s participants covered aspects of the entire LGBT spectrum and our allies, as well as multiple racial, ethnic, and cultural identities, different stages of parenthood, and different ways of family creation. I dislike assigning labels to people, however, so I’m just going to urge you to browse deeply in the list rather than try to categorize it myself. (Next year, I may let people optionally self-tag their entries—e.g., “lesbian, Black, TTC”; “gay, adoptive, multiracial,” etc., etc.)
Happy weekend, all!
