This month, February, is LGBT+ history month folks, the overall aim of which is to promote equality and diversity, partly by increasing the visibility of LGBT+ people, their history, lives and experiences. I'll be linking to various articles and stories etc, which focus on LGBT+ families, throughout the month.
We'll be kicking off with a beautiful piece from the Wilde family blog "Meet the Wilde's." Many thanks to Amber for allowing me to share "Love Letters to a Snowflake." *** Next up for LGBT history month (and with many thanks to BJ Epstein Woodstein for suggesting this piece, written by her from the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers), a great article about supporting LGBTQ families - abm.me.uk *** Steve and Adrian blogging at Two Dads are growing their young family through adoption. You can follow their story and subscribe for updates. I warn you, get your tissues ready.
