8 LGBT Parenting Myth Busters

International Family Equality Day was on the 5th of May, and while we, as Indians cannot celebrate homoparental/ queer families yet, we’d like to bust some myths that we hear often about these families.

Homoparental/queer families are creations of love just like any other family. They are made to support, to raise and to fall back on.

Here’s hoping to some change in laws and understanding of what makes a family. Not heterosexuality, just love.
