Posts are already starting to trickle in. While it’s more fun if we all post on the same day, I’m happy to take early posts if you’re going to be away on the 1st. Just complete the form at the bottom of this post, after the jump.

Remember, the Family Equality Council, the event sponsor, has donated a free Family Registration to Family Week 2009 in Provincetown. I will give this away to one randomly selected participant.

Also, author Sarah Brannen has offered a signed copy of her picture book Uncle Bobby’s Wedding. It’s the delightful tale of a young guinea pig named Chloe, who is concerned that her uncle will no longer have time for her after he marries his boyfriend. It’s a reassuring tale for all children, regardless of family type. I’ll give that away to a random participant as well.

Here’s how it works:

  • Blog on a topic related to LGBT families on or before June 1, 2009.
  • Complete the form at the bottom of this post to submit your entry.
  • I’ll compile the posts and highlight them here on June 1. Come back and read the stories and insights of our community and allies.
  • To be eligible for the Family Week or book drawings, you must leave a valid e-mail address. Employees of FEC and paying advertisers on Mombian are ineligible.

Any blogger who wants to support LGBT families is welcome, LGBT or not, parent or not. I encourage those who don’t usually post about LGBT families or LGBT issues, as well as those for whom every day is Blogging for LGBT Families Day. Give it a spin based on your usual blog topics. There’s no set formula or format. Photos and videos are also welcome.

The list of last year’s contributions is still online for your perusal.

Please also download a banner and promote the event on your site, Facebook, Twitter, etc. The more people who participate, the more impact our voices will have.
