One Million Kids For Equality, in coalition with The Personal Stories Project and the Mississippi Gulf Coast Rainbow Center, have officially launched a historic and very ambitious campaign to engage One Million Kids ahead of this summer’s historic ruling on marriage equality.
The campaign started Thursday with the launch of a temporary website, a Facebook page and a Twitter account. Over the coming weeks, organizers will be launching a full website that promises “many additional ways to get engaged.”
The website’s tagline reads: “One Million Kids For Equality is an organization of folks from all walks of life who support full equality for the LGBT community.”
Organizers say: “Some of us identify as LGBT, some of us are Allies, others grew up in families with loving, committed same-sex parents, and ALL of us believe in full equality.”
They continued, “We each have a story. Many of us were bullied in school for being different, some of us have been teased for having two moms or two dads, and still others have been beat up for standing up for a friend or loved one. Each of us has a dream. Some of us want to be able to walk hand in hand with the person we love without being stared at; some of us want to see our two moms married in our home state, or for our dad to be able to keep a picture of our family on his desk without fear of losing his job. Whatever your story, we invite you to join us as we work to build a movement to show that We Are. We Love. We Stand. United.
A mailing list has also been established via the website: Onemillionkids.org.

However, all things are possible if you set your mind to them. Those that prioritize their fitness nearly...
With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
The same can be said of other...
