I love the summer! My family does more things together since work is more relaxed for my moms. Summer is also fun because it is Pride Month! The United States celebrates Pride Month in June to celebrate and honor the Stonewall riots that took place in June 1969. The past year has been very fun; last year, President Obama designated the Stonewall Inn as a National Monument! As many of my readers know, I am a big, big fan of the National Parks Service. Hurrah!
I meant to go take a picture in front of the Stonewall Inn, but my family has been pretty busy so that will have to wait until later in the month. Instead, I am participating in local Pride events! I like to carry my rainbow flag and wear my Pride tee. This year, June seems a bit colder than usual, so for this photoshoot I paired my outfit with a new cardigan.
I am very proud to be the daughter of lesbian parents! I love having two moms. They both love me very much and I learn so much from them. I have lots of friends. Some of my friends have two moms like me, some have two dads. Some have one mom and one grandma, or one mom and one dad. What matters about a family is not the gender of your parents or caregivers, but how much love you have for each other. Love is what makes families grow!
Are you proud of your family? What are some of your favorite things that your family does together?
