MOMBIAN – Sustenance For Lesbian Moms Since 2005

Posted on May 23, 2022

What Is Mombian?

The GLAAD Media Award-winning Mombian is one of the longest-running LGBTQ parenting blogs. As a lifestyle site for lesbian moms and other LGBTQ parents, it offers a mix of parenting, politics, diversions, and resources, including news about LGBTQ families, parenting tips, reviews of LGBTQ-inclusive family books and media (and a large, searchable database of them), and political and legal news and commentary with an eye towards their impact on LGBTQ families.

Mombian launched in 2005 to address the lack of sites with current, practical news and information for LGBTQ parents, or sites that looked at other aspects of LGBTQ culture with a parent’s eye. In 2006, it also created and hosted the annual Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day, which has evolved to become #LGBTQFamiliesDay, a day of social media posting and sharing in celebration and support of LGBTQ families.

The Mombian newspaper column, which launched in 2007, is one of the longest-running columns on LGBTQ parenting in the country, and appears in Bay WindowsBetween the LinesPhiladelphia Gay NewsSouth Florida Gay NewsWashington Blade, and Windy City Times newspapers.
