From The Huffington Post comes this request for photos of what our families look like; be they your close friends, pets, spouses or you and the kids:
For queer people, the term “family” can mean many things — from two gay dads and their kids to a bisexual woman, her boyfriend and their dog to a troupe of drag queens and everything in between (and outside of those examples). But all too often that word is withheld from us or used against us by those who claim we don’t have a right to it because we don’t look or act like what a “traditional” family looks or acts like.
But we’re having none of that. And thanks to the Twitter hashtag #MyQueerFamily, we’re sending a little love to everyone who proudly shared photos of their families with us when we put out a call earlier this week. Feast your eyes on these beautiful folks who chose to take part in this campaign and if you want to be part of this stunning group, tweet your own photo using #MyQueerFamily and we’ll add it in the coming days.
