Raising the Visibility of Experiences of LGBT Families of Color: Our Families

There is something truly powerful about people telling their own stories.

From the Our Families Web Page:

Our Families is a community-based education project that raises the visibility, experiences and public support of LGBT families of color within predominately straight communities of color.

Our communities are strongest when all our families are honored and respected.  Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are part of the fabric of communities of color and are members of our own families.   We believe that all families, in all our diversity are what make our community strong and that all families deserve equal access to healthcare, employment, education, family protections and more. “

Because these are our families too.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
