Among the excitement is a HUGE moment in NFL history. Michael Sam is poised to be the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL. Which team will get him? We don't know that, but we can send a strong message of support for Michael on Draft Day and beyond.

Tell Us About Your Family

GLAAD and COLAGE want to know your story of being raised by LGBTQ parents!

So many people don't know what it is like to be raised by a parent or two who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer—which can lead to a lot of misinformation. We'd love to help you share your thoughts or memories. What have been the gifts and challenges? Did you ever face discrimination as a result?  How were you treated by your friends, or teachers and classmates, your neighbors when they found out?  Don't worry about the form, just tell your story.

Tell lawmakers that all families should be protected

'Tis the season to share the joys of what it means to be a family. In 32 states, some couples can't marry because of who they love. Tell the governors of those states that all families should be protected. Share the holiday photos of your family -- whether you're LGBT or an ally -- with the governors of these states and enourage them to support equality for everyone.

Russia's Olympic Playbook

"It’s led to a huge increase in antigay violence, including murders. It’s led to attacks on gay and lesbian clubs and film festivals… and because these laws are passed supposedly to protect children, the people who are most targeted or have the most to fear are LGBT parents…LGBT people have an incredible amount to fear right now, especially if they have children.” 
– Russian author and activist Masha Gessen to ABCNews.com
