How do you define “Family”?
The definition may vary based on your life experience. In the LGBTQ community, “family” has symbolized a bond among the members of the community in the fight for equality since the Stonewall Riots in NY over 45 years ago.
While we haven’t abandoned our colloquial use of “family”, the literal family has taken on new meaning in our community. LGBTQ families are now afforded many of the same rights as their opposite-sex counterparts – Husband and Wife are now terms that carry legal meaning – and we continue expand what a family looks like by the diversity of our community.
This year we celebrate your family, our family,the human family, all “family”, and all families. We invite you to participate in our “What Does Family Mean?” photo project.
This year, more than ever…
We are Family!
