Happy Mother’s Day

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we are reminded of an article that was written for Nisnis by an Ethiopian lesbian who is the mother of twins. In a powerful article about her coming out process, she speaks about her hopes of raising kids who are able to accept people as they are and who are free from homophobia.

“So what I want to do regarding the future is to teach my children not to have the perspective that the majority of Ethiopians have and to help them have a well-informed perspective on the topic,” she writes.

Today, we wish her and all of the mothers in our queer community a happy Mother’s Day.
