“Love Makes a Family” Adds Local Families in Whidbey Island Exhibit

“Love Makes a Family” was on display until November 4 at Langley United Methodist Church on Whidbey Island near Seattle, WA.  As a unique take on an FDP exhibit, the organizers invited local LGBT people to submit family pictures and text for the display.

Larry Fox, as exhibit coordinator, explained adding locals to the exhibit:

“We understand that coming out in this way takes courage, because many LGBT people have been wounded by negative attitudes and outright discrimination,” Fox said. “We also know that LGBT people are our friends and neighbors here on the Island, and hearing the stories of how they built their families is important.”

First Comes Love, a B. Proud book

firstcomesloveB. Proud has developed a book and traveling exhibit on long-term gay and lesbian couples titled, “First Comes Love”. Six years in the development, the goal of “First Comes Love” is to provide a glimpse into the “everyday” lives of LGBTQ couples who have been in their relationships for 10, 20, 30, 40 and even 50 years! Unlike the stereotypical picture painted by the media, these portraits and stories seek to educate those who question, celebrate those who have loving, devoted relationships, and provide an historical record of the strength of this community.

Learn more at the website for First Comes Love, including the option to buy the book.
