Blogging for LGBT Families Day 2008

The third annual Blogging for LGBT Families Day is fast approaching
on June 2. Bloggers of all orientations and identities are invited
to post about LGBT families that day or shortly beforehand, and
then to notify me (see below) so I can compile and showcase the

I know many readers write about LGBT families every day, but I hope
you’ll take advantage of this occasion to join in the community
spirit and perhaps gain some new readers. Write a special post or
just your usual; whatever strikes your fancy.

I also encourage those who don’t usually post about LGBT families
or LGBT issues. Give it a spin based on your usual blog topics.
There’s no set formula or format.

Photos and videos are also welcome. (Post them on your own site or
an image-sharing site, however; don’t e-mail them to me.)

Please also download
a banner
and promote the event on your site. The more people
who participate, the more impact our voices will have.

Further details below:

  • Blog on a topic related to LGBT families on or before June 2,
  • Leave a comment on this post, or send an e-mail to
    with the permalink to your post. (If
    you know how, you may also add the tag “blogging for lgbt families
    day” to your entry.)
  • If you only post on Facebook or MySpace, you may also add me,
    Dana Rudolph, as a friend to notify me of your post. (Here’s my
    page and my MySpace
    page. If you do a search for my name, though, make sure to look for
    the event banner image, as there are multiple Dana Rudolphs.) If
    you do have a regular blog, I much prefer that you post there,
    since then your post will be readable even by those who don’t have
    Facebook or MySpace accounts—and the whole point here is to share
    our posts.
  • I’ll compile the posts and highlight them at Mombian on June 2. Come back and read
    the stories and insights of our community and allies.

Thanks to the Family
Equality Council
for sponsorship of the event.

I hope many of you will be a part of this.
