Send in Your Nominees for HRC’s Mother of the Year

HRC Mother of the YearMother’s Day is a little more than two weeks away, and we have a great gift idea for you: Nominate a special mom in your life for HRC’s “Mother of the Year” award.

The award is an opportunity to raise the visibility of the amazing LGBT and ally moms out there!

Do you know a mom who is deserving of this award? To participate, visit the campaign site at You must submit a photo of the nominee and write a brief story (maximum 500 characters) telling us why the LGBT community should know about this outstanding parent. And of course, if you have two moms, please feel free to nominate both, either separately or together.

A panel of judges that includes HRC President Joe Solmonese and HRC Foundation Family Project Director Ellen Kahn will choose one winner and two runners-up. In addition to the distinction of being named “HRC's Mother of the Year,” the winner will be featured in Equality magazine, on HRC’s website and on the Back Story blog. Runners-up will have their names printed in Equality magazine and on the Back Story blog.  

Nominations must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, May 4. Winners will be announced on Friday, May 6.
