It's like the Sunday Times' Week in Review... only not...
On Thursday, the first annual Blogging for LGBT families day occurred. An amazing 132 blogs posted. Congratulations to Dana Rudolph for organizing the successful day. (For more, listen to her interview on the Gay Parenting Show.)
I did a run through and scanned, if not read, all 132 postings. Overwhelmingly, the majority of the posts were parents of young kids or couples trying to become parents. There were also a number of postings by people who wanted to raise awareness of LGBT family issues even if they might not be in one themselves. Surprisingly, only a few posts from people who identified themselves as having one or more gay parent.
There's lots of great stuff out there to read, but if you only have a few minutes here are my three favorites:
Abigail Garner's brilliant welcome to queerspawn post on Damn Straight. While you are there, check out the comment by
a parent a non-parent lesbian who cringes at the term "queerspawn." Reminds me of the debates of use of "queer." [Thanks to Abigail for correcting me. Late night posting got the best of me.]
Enjoy! And see you Monday...
