Blogging for LGBT Families Day: Master Post of Contributions — Add Yours!

2013familydayIt’s Blogging for LGBT Families Day! Below is the master list of contributed posts, which I have kept updated throughout the day (and into the night). [Last update: 08:00 a.m. ET, 6/4: I'm still accepting posts to accommodate time zones, family emergencies, and simple forgetfulness. Make sure to check the list for new additions you haven't read!]

To submit a post, complete the form at the end of this post. Older posts are welcome, too. If you don’t have a blog of your own (but only then), leave your contribution in a comment.

Please allow some time between submitting a post and its appearance in the list below. I will be updating the list as fast as possible, but new posts may not appear immediately.

You can also tweet in support of LGBT families and use the hashtag #lgbtfamilies. Your tweets will then appear in the list over in the sidebar. (You can follow the hashtag using your favorite Twitter software, too.)

Please encourage all your friends, LGBT and not, to participate! Thanks to the Family Equality Council for co-sponsoring this year’s event.
