2016familyday300It’s Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day! Here is the master list of contributed posts, which I will keep updated throughout the day. Please come back to check for new additions you haven’t read! Thanks to all of you for participating!

Update, Thursday morning, 6/2: I will still accept posts for a day or so, because I realize that sometimes being with our families takes priority over blogging about our families, and posts don’t get written in time. (Not to mention the whole time zone business.) Just submit the links below. Thanks to all of you who have participated, both first-timers and old hands! It’s always an honor to read your stories.

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, make a public Facebook post, upload to a video- or photo-sharing site and submit the link, or leave your contribution in a comment on this post. You can also tweet in support of LGBTQ families with the hashtag #LGBTQfamilies. I’ll also be posting links over at the Mombian Facebook page all day, so you can follow the fun there if that’s how you roll. Please encourage all your friends, LGBTQ, their families, and allies, to participate!

Thanks to all of the above individuals and organizations, and to GLAADFamily Equality Council, and HRC for helping to support and promote this event—and thanks to all of you for participating!

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.
