Beautiful Mother’s Day Cards For LGBT Families

Finding Mother’s Day cards that reflect the diversity of LGBT families can be tricky, but the Strong Families Initiative has come up with a gorgeous solution!

For the third year in a row, the Strong Families Initiative has created a series of e-cards “highlighting mamas who are missing from greeting card aisles — queer moms, low-income moms, young moms, immigrant moms, single moms, incarcerated moms” among others. This year’s cards were created by seventeen different artist.

As Eveline Shen, Executive Director of Strong Families, points out “According to the 2010 census, nearly 80% of households in this country do not reflect the traditional nuclear family norm - with two heterosexual parents and their 2 biological kids.”

Visit the Initiative’s Initiative’s website to learn more about the project and to personalize your own e-cards.
