How to Be an Ally during LGBTQ+ Families Day

June 01, 2021

Support your friends and family in the LGBTQ+ community with these resources

A homosexual biracial couple sit on a park bench with their young son. He is sitting on their laps and they're snuggling and talking with him. One mom is African-American and the other is Caucasian.

Tuesday, June 1st, 2021, is #LGBTQFamiliesDay. Started by Mombian to celebrate and support LGBTQ+ families. In partnership with Family Equality, this day brings together allies, supporters, families, and the LGBTQ+ community to recognize that not all families fit into the “traditional” structure of one father and one mother. Fairfax Cryobank  celebrates this day by providing our readers with some resources to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ community and #LGBTQFamiliesDay.

Share on Social

#LGBTQFamilies Day is all about getting the word out. Tweet, share and post in support of the LGBTQ+ community by including the hashtag #LGBTQFamiliesDay. Follow the hashtag throughout the day to view some fantastic LGBTQ+ families and share their stories to spread the celebration.

Below is an image Mombian has created to save and share on their own social media account.
