Queer Chosen Families

I’m really into the concept of queer networking and big chosen families and inter generational queer families like we get abandoned so much and it’s been so good having friends who are 30 or 40 or 50 and also younger friends, 18, 19, 20 I can feel helpful toward. Finding and choosing our own siblings, aunts, uncles, non gender specific older family members, cousins, legal, official or unofficial spouses of the platonic and romantic varieties…. Fur babies and birthed babies and adopted babies, and networks of adults all joining to care for them and guide them. Networks of love and partnership and friendship and bonds that feel much deeper than the ones we left behind that we were told were unbreakable… People who are there when we can’t break away from the old bonds but need somewhere to rest. So important. We are so important to each other.
