But before I do, I want to thank the many gay dads and couples who participated (close to 100!), each of whom helped put a public face to our families. Judging by the many comments left by the tens of thousands who voted, these gay dad family stories were inspiring and heartwarming.
Huge congratulations to Brett and Justin of British Columbia, Canada, winners of the grand prize: a 3-night winter vacation to Palm Springs, South Beach, or New York City!
Justin entered the contest with the hopes of being able to take his stay-at-home fiancé Brett on a much-deserved, dads-only trip to relax and rejuvenate. Enjoy guys, we hope you have a perfect trip and we look forward to hearing all about it!
I also want to congratulate the top three runners-up, each of whom will receive a fabulous dinner date for two.
Special thanks to Orbitz for generously donating the airline tickets for the vacation. Book your next trip via GayOrbitz.com
To all contestants, voters, and others who helped spread the word, tremendous thanks for showing off the incredible love of gay dad families!
