Each and every year, thousands of you — gay, bi and trans dads around the world — tag us in your photos on social media. You share your pregnancy announcements. Or incredible moments when you first do "skin to skin" with your newborn. Or the day you stand in front of a judge and officially become a "forever family."
These photos mean so much more than the number of likes or comments they get. Taken together, they are an incredible show of visibility. By living our lives publicly and proudly, with our kids at our sides, we're helping normalize the idea that queer men can be dads (and fabulous ones at that) — hopefully making things just a little bit easier for future generations of queer dads to be.
They're also just really cute, so there's that, too. So below, enjoy some of our favorite Instagram posts from 2021!
