Participate in Blogging for LGBT Families Day!

We’re tickled pink to share some exciting news with all of you: the
3rd Annual Blogging for LGBT Families Day will take place on June

The press release states:

June 2, 2008 is the third annual Blogging for LGBT
Families Day, when bloggers of all sexual orientations and gender
identities come together and write in support of lesbian, gay,
bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) families. The event, developed by
LGBT-parenting site Mombian and sponsored by the Family Equality
Council, aims to raise awareness of LGBT families, their diverse
configurations and how current prejudices and legal discrimination
have a negative impact on their lives and children. Last year, over
150 bloggers took part.

The event is held each year at the start of June, between Mother’s
Day and Father’s Day, in order to honor both equally, but also to
convey that not all families fit into the traditional structure of
one mother and one father. June is also Gay Pride Month, making it
doubly appropriate.

The Family Equality Council is honored to be the sponsor of
Blogging for LGBT Families Day. Jennifer Chrisler, Executive
Director of Family Equality Council, states: “Blogging is an
increasingly important tool for LGBT visibility, community
connection and activism. Blogging for LGBT Families Day is a great
way for us to exchange stories and perspectives with each other and
the world. By doing so, we can share common ground and respect our
differences. Together, we can achieve our vision of equality for
all diverse families.”

To participate, a blogger should write at his or her own blog on a
topic related to LGBT families on or before June 2, 2008, then
leave a comment at, or send an e-mail to with
the link to the post. Any blogger who supports LGBT families is
welcome to contribute a post, whether they are LGBT or not, parents
or not. Mombian will showcase the full list of participants on June
