Toronto the Good, Part 2: Pride and Respect
In honour of Pride Week, another reason I love this city for my babe: exposure to many different family models.
I want Cakes to grow up among families that are different from our traditional family unit of mother, father, and biological child.
I want her to appreciate families with one mom or one dad, two moms or two dads, families that include extended family, families with adopted children, inter-racial families, families with no children.
Here in Toronto, particularly in our neighbourhood, she will see all of these variations and will understand they are not inferior to our family model.
She will respect these many forms of family.
By the way, the Pride festival has a weekend of family activities. Find information here.
