Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day 2016It’s that time of year again! The 11th Annual Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day is Wednesday, June 1! Anyone who wants to show their support for LGBTQ families is welcome to join us.

For some of us, every day is a day to blog about LGBTQ families; for others, it’s an occasional or even new topic. Regardless, I hope you’ll consider submitting a post to share on June 1 in celebration of our diverse LGBTQ families and our many allies.

I’ll have more information in the coming days about a few organizations that are helping to spread the word about this event—but at its heart, Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day is about independent bloggers writing (or vlogging, or photographing) to make a difference.

Here’s how it works:

  • Bloggers should post at their own blogs, YouTube channels, or other public social media channels on a topic related to LGBTQ families on or before June 1, 2016, then submit the links to your entries here. I will showcase the full list of participants at Mombian on June 1 for all to see.
  • If you use Facebook, just make sure your contributed post is set to “Public.” Then click the date/time stamp to go to that post’s specific page and copy the URL that’s in your browser’s address bar so you can submit it.
  • Additionally, you may tweet in support of LGBTQ families on June 1 and include the hashtag #lgbtqfamilies. I will display the tweets in a scrolling box at throughout the day. The hashtag can also be followed using most popular Twitter software.

How is “family” defined for the event? Any way you want—that’s the point!
