In 2006, Liza was pregnant and in search of other mothers to answer her questions. She yearned for a one stop shop for lesbian moms to gather. Not finding quite what she wanted, she created it. Thus, lesbianfamily.com was born.
In 2007, I started writing for Lesbian Family. At the time I was living in Chile and trying to find other LGBT friendly-folk. The blogging helped me find a whole tiny world of lesbian bloggeras (that would be the Spanish for blogging women). I helped add a Spanish speaking section to the original page and am so proud to say that Julieta has agreed to be part of the reincarnation of LesbianFamily.com.
As a bisexual woman, married to a man, mother to a daughter (little elephant), and sole bread winner— I haven’t yet rejoined the ranks of Lesbian Family. I am, nonetheless, so excited for the new content and new voices. Check it out. Lesbian family is not just for lesbians. It is a great place for allies and gay dads and trans parents and anyone else who is interested. It is a wonderful space for parents who want to discuss raising allies, feminist parenting, and getting toddlers to eat broccoli.
