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

To submit a post, complete the form at the end of this post. Older posts are welcome, too, as long as you haven’t submitted them for a previous year of this event. You’re welcome to submit two or three posts if you really just can’t choose; please refrain from posting your entire archive if you post frequently about LGBTQ families.

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. Please encourage all your friends, LGBTQ, their families, and allies, to participate!

Thanks to GLAADFamily Equality Council, and HRC for being key supporters of this event; also to PFLAG and COLAGE for helping to get the word out. Mostly, though, thanks to all of the individuals who took the time to write posts and share their thoughts and stories. You enrich and strengthen us all.

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.
