Monday 2nd June is the ninth annual Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day.2014familyday403

The day was first launched on the lesbian parenting website as a means of showing support for and raising awareness of LGBTQ families. The day is sure to provide a fascinating opportunity to learn more about the everyday lives and experiences of LGBTQ families.

If you own a blog, are interested in blogging, or need an excuse to start, why not submit a post? More details of how to take part are available from the Mombian website by clicking here.

If you are more interested in reading other people’s stories rather than writing one yourself, be sure to check out the Mombian website or Twitter hashtag #LGBTQfamilies on 2nd June.
