Essence Seeks Gay Parents

We frequently hear talk about how positive gay images are not portrayed in the African American community. Well, here is an opportunity to help change that. I just received this email and am posting it with the hopes that you forward and share it with others as well. We really need an overwhelming response to this.

ESSENCE magazine is looking to PROFILE a gay African-American couple who have adopted Black children separately or together and have blended them into a loving family.
If you fit that profile or know anyone and think they'll be good, let me know by 10 am. Wednesday, Feb. 3rd.

We've thought about adoption - still thinking about it even - but right now, we're still hangin' with the ONE little man we have. Interesting story though....when do they plan to air it?

I hate I missed this, I know a couple that fit the profile perfectly. And we so need these type of images in main stream media
