Representation is paramount in all shapes and forms.
Whilst many TV shows and films are becoming better as representing the LGBTQ spectrum, one demographic that we really want to see more of is LGBTQ families aka rainbow families.
Whilst the media portrayal does a great job in shows like Modern Family, these feel a little far and few between.
Equally when I log on to Instagram, most LGBTQ content that I see is stereotypically hot gay guys, rarely do I see a LGBTQ family unit and whilst the hot guys are great to see, seeing LGBTQ families always warms my heart.
So to break the algorithm we wanted to share with you our favourite, adorable and inspiring LGBTQ family blogs and Instagram accounts, make sure you follow them and show then some love.
