Note: This holiday season, in lieu of a traditional holiday gift guide, we'll be featuring a different LGBT organization each day for our "30 Days Of LGBT Giving." Check back tomorrow for a look at another incredible group that's working tirelessly on behalf of the LGBT community.
What started as a small group of gay fathers looking for a support network has now grown into the Family Equality Council, one of the largest advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender families since 1982.
With over one million LGBT parents and their two million children, organizations like the FEC work not only to connect these families, but also to provide resources to LGBT couples looking to start a family and to create "a world where all loving families are recognized, respected, protected, and celebrated."
On Tuesday, HuffPost Gay Voices partnered with the council in a live Twitter chat about LGBT families and adoption in honor of November being National Adoption Month.
Want to know more about the Family Equality Council and how you can give back to this wonderful organization this holiday season and for later on? Visit their website, and follow them on Twitter @family_equality or you can find them on Facebook.
