Monday, June 3, is Blogging for LGBT Families Day. 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.
“The stories shared on Blogging for LGBT Families Day are always a wonderful mix of experiences and perspectives,” said Dana Rudolph, founder and publisher of Mombian. “They have included parents across the LGBT spectrum, LGBT individuals without children, and non-LGBT allies. The stories range from the personal to the political, the poignant to the humorous.”
