HRC Unveils New Collaboration with Marc Jacobs
May 7, 2012 by HRC staff
This post comes from HRC Consumer Marketing Assistant Bryce Romero:
HRC is unveiling its latest collaboration with openly gay designer and longtime activist Marc Jacobs in recognition of LGBT moms and dads. Celebrated each year on the second Sunday of May, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate ALL mothers. Little Marc Jacobs, the designer’s highly successful children’s line, is proud to embrace the diversity of American families - including those families with two moms or two dads.
Inspired by Marc Jacobs International President and gay dad Robert Duffy, these innovative and politically forward infant and toddler t-shirts feature a clever re-wording of the familiar saying: “If one parent says no, ask the other.”
In every corner of our nation, there are loving, committed same-sex couples raising children or hoping to do so one day. While a growing number of states provide some form of legal recognition for their relationships – and the associated rights, benefits and protections critical to building safe and strong families – in most places in the United States, lesbian and gay couples are treated as legal strangers, to each other and in many cases to the children they are raising. HRC’s Family Project and the All Children - All Families initiative seek to enhance LGBT cultural competence among child welfare professionals, educate LGBT people about opportunities to become foster or adoptive parents to waiting children and work to achieve full legal protections for LGBT couples and their children.
