Love Makes a Family

A critically acclaimed photo exhibit of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their children goes on display this afternoon at the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Canton. Called "Love Makes a Family", the exhibit of photos allows family members to speak candidly about their lives, relationships and the way they deal with the pressures of homophobia. Photos and text from more than 20 families are included in the exhibit, which was first shown last weekend in the Hosmer Gallery on the SUNY Potsdam campus. It's sponsored by a number of local groups that support so-called nontraditional families - PFLAG - Parents, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays, Northern New York Families, PRISM, and the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Canton.
