Today Family Equality Council is thrilled to congratulate Julian, age 8 of New Mexico, as the winner of our 2nd Annual Family Drawing Contest. Julian will receive a $250 savings bond. This year's ten finalists hailed from across the nation: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Texas. Over 4,000 people cast votes in the Contest this year. The Drawing Contest serves to put a face on too-often invisible lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) headed families in communities around the country.

See the book after the jump!

All parents, LGBT or not, will enjoy sharing this heartwarming collection with children, teachers and extended family. The book speaks to the important threads that all families share--care and commitment, joy and love.

I haven't awwwww-ed that much since dailypuppy.com lol.

Personally I prefer 5th place Ben from RI eating ice cream but, they are all great.

Julian has a future in the arts! :)
