Fisher-Price Makes A Big Statement In Support Of LGBT Families


Fisher-Price partners with Proud Parenting to increase the visibility of LGBT parents and their families.

Proud Parenting has embarked on a new LGBT parenting project with the help of toy manufacturer Fisher-Price. The two organizations have launched a photo gallery that showcases some of America's three million LGBT parents with their families.

"We are thrilled to partner with Proud Parenting for its first-ever program to increase the visibility of LBGT families," said Hailey Sullivan, Director of Marketing, Fisher-Price. "Fisher-Price is proud to help all parents give their children the best possible start in life."


The goal of the program is to increase the visibility of LGBT parents and to encourage interaction and support between LGBT parents, their friends and their allies. Proud Parenting will be featuring new families throughout the summer on their website, Instagram, and Facebook pages.

"We are excited to partner with Fisher-Price on the Proud Parenting LGBT Family Photo Gallery," said Jeff Bennett, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Proud Parenting. "With a long-standing history of diversity and inclusiveness, they are now leading the way for a new generation of families."

Mattel, the Fortune 500 company that owns Fisher-Price, is very LGBT friendly. In 2013, they released an It Gets Better video to help support LGBT youth and combat bullying. Mattel has a score of 95 percent on the 2015 HRC Corporate Equality Index, a report that rates American workplaces on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality. 

Below are some of the family pictures from the campaign. To see more, go to the Proud Parenting websiteFacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
