IFED/IDAHOT call for your family story
View this email in your browser
Hey all,

We are writing to you because we know just how important your family is to you. And Families are exactly what the next IDAHOT and IFED will focus on !

All through the IDAHOT and IFED period we will post FAMILY STORIES on our channels and let the world know how much caring and accepting families matter. 
We need your contribution!

We invite you to send us YOUR family story, in whichever format you wish: a short text, a family photo, a poem, a video, a child's drawing, the letter you always wanted to send your parents, .... 
It can be happy, sad, thoughtful, cute, provocative.... Whatever your story actually is.

You can either post it to the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia global Facebook page or to 
IFED's special webpage. We will share it from there.
Please share this call widely with all your friends, contacts, members and, of course, with your family  !

And please consider sharing these stories widely on your own channels, once we publish them. So stay tuned in and make sure you set your Facebook settings in the "following" tab to "see first" once you've liked our pages.

We are REALLY looking forward to receiving your story!!!
Warm regards
The IDAHO Committee
The International Family Equality Day

PS: Please see below my own contribution :) 
Wedding picture
I'm 51. When I was young, marriage was nowhere on my radar. Not in my love life, not in my political life, and certainly not in my family life. The question from Auntie Georgie (gender neutrality intended) "And when are YOU getting married?" was forever dreaded, unanswered and unanswerable. What could you say? "Not until I can marry my boyfriend" was not even understandable as a joke. So we didn't even joke about it.
And here's my wedding pic, year 2014. In the crowd: my mum, my brother, sister in law, nephew and niece. My partner's mum and dad, his two brothers and all their partners and kids. Our daughter handed us the wedding rings. Both her mums were also there, of course.
Are you getting a bit lost? well, that's the genius of families today: they are not pre-formatted boxes you have to fit into. They are your own creation. Freedom is not to everyone's liking. We hear this every day. But my family is our own creation. It's there. It's happy. And that's it.
