Gay Families Find the Bronx Is a Place to Call Home

This just in from the New York Times:

“It is a statistic surprising even to those it describes: Same-sex
couples in the Bronx are more likely to have children than those in
any other New York City borough, according to a study released last
month, and perhaps more than any county in the country.”

“For Ron and Greg Poole-Dayan, whose 7-year-old twins were born to
a surrogate mother, it’s a matter of geography. Their home in
Riverdale puts them a bit closer to family, as well as the
Berkshire Mountains, where they go hiking.”

This important story further expands the idea of who our families
are, where they live and what kinds of communities they create. The
Family Equality Council was proud to put Ron and his family in
contact with the Times. Sharing the real stories of our families
lives is key to achieving family equality. Thanks Ron, Greg, Tomer
and Elinor for sharing your life and making your family visible for
us all.
