Blogging for LGBT Families Day 2012The 7th Annual Blogging for LGBT Families Day is now days away! People are already starting to submit posts, which is great—although it’s also fine if you wait until the official day, June 1. (That’s this Friday!) Please help spread the word over the next few days—on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or wherever you hang out online.

To participate, simply blog at your own blog on a topic related to LGBT families on or before June 1, then visit to submit the link to your entry. (Click the “Blogging for LGBT Families” banner to do so.)

More details and banners (use them on your blog now to help spread the word!) after the jump.

Any blogger who wants to support LGBT families is welcome, LGBT or not, parent or not. I encourage those who don’t usually post about LGBT families or LGBT issues, as well as those for whom every day is Blogging for LGBT Families Day. Give it a spin based on your usual blog topics. There’s no set formula or format. Photos and videos are also welcome.

Here’s how it works:

  • Submit your post as above. I will showcase the full list of participants here at Mombian on June 1.
  • You can also create a video and upload it to YouTube or other video sharing service, tag it “lgbtfamilies,” and submit the link at Mombian.
  • Additionally, you can tweet in support of LGBT families on June 1 and include the hashtag #lgbtfamilies. I will display the tweets in a scrolling box at throughout the day. You can follow the hashtag using most popular Twitter software.
  • Come back often on June 1 to read the posts and (re)discover friends and allies from across the blogosphere.

Please also grab a banner below and promote the event on your site, Facebook, Twitter, etc. The more people who participate, the more impact our voices will have.


  • Right-click the image (Mac users: click and hold) and choose “Download image,” “Save image as…” or “Save picture as…” Follow the prompts in the dialogue box to save to your computer.
  • Upload to your blog or Facebook as you would any image.
  • Link the image to
  • You may not modify the images and may only use them to link to the Blogging for LGBT Families Day posts at Mombian.
  • Please download the image(s) you want to your own computer (and then upload them to your blog, Facebook, etc.), rather than link to the image files here. (If I find people are doing that, I will change the image names so old image links won’t work.)
