To show our LGBT+ family support during this exciting month, we want to celebrate some of our favorite LGBT+ families from around the world, both Lingokids users and non-users.
All of these social media influencers are inspirational examples of diverse families who use their platforms to discuss, embrace, and celebrate the differences that we believe unites us all. These families truly inspire us with their honesty, vulnerability, and, of course, their adorable children! And that’s why we think they deserve a special shoutout.
7 LGBT+ families we’re showing our Lingolove for!

️ LGBT+ Parenting: Show your pride!
Whether you’re part of the LGBT+ community or not, we all have an amazing opportunity to celebrate and teach our children about Pride! Influencer Rob Taylor explains in his Why Pride Matters blog article the many advantages that participating in Pride offers our kids in their development.
In his article, Rob explains that one of the reasons Pride matters is that it breaks stereotypes and teaches our little ones to be accepting of all people. And in addition to raising awareness, teaching our children about Pride can also help normalize LGBT+ parenting.
By taking part in Pride and showing our LGBT+ families support, we can raise our little ones to be confident, accepting, and inclusive individuals.
Happy Pride Month to LGBT+ families everywhere!
During this month – and all year round for that matter – we’re celebrating the diversity that makes up our Lingofamily, as well as our entire global community.
Check out our video compilation of these LGBT+ parents and their amazing families to see why we love them so much!
