Off To Family Week

by The Next Family August 05, 2010

By: K. Pearson Brown

Today I am excited to be headed with my partner and son to Boston and then to Provincetown to partake in the annual Family Week there hosted by Family Equality Council!

I’ve been to three fantastic events held by Family Equality, but they have all been for adults. If they put on picnics, bonfires, movie nights, play dates, open swim, family happy hours and the all of the other activities of this special week for LGBT parents and their kids like they do their fabulous galas and fundraising cocktail parties, then this will be a truly wonderful week; we I expect it will be!

I’ve been in NY all week on business, so my family is reuniting with me in Boston tonight and then spending a couple of days in the city before we embark on our Family Week excursion. While my workweek was wonderfully productive and enjoyable, it was seven excruciating days without my son and is the longest I have ever been separated from him. Hearing his little voice on my nightly calls only made it worse. I can’t wait to snatch him up and give him a full-on bear hug!

I’m packing up from my hotel in NY and off to JFK. It’s been a long week away from my blog as well, so I am hoping to have time to write some updates from Bean Town and P-town. I can’t wait!!

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...

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

by The Next Family March 24, 2016 1 Comment


By Alex Temblador

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...
