Instagram se ha convertido en una gran ventana para el amor lésbico y la visibilidad. Es muy fácil encontrar parejas de lesbianas y familias compuestas por dos mamás, como es el caso de las famosas BabyBaileyMamaDrama.
Ese es el nombre que tienen en redes sociales Christina y Katie Bailey, que se conocieron por internet en 2012, cuando tenían 23 y 25 años.
Ambas buscaban el amor estable, y tuvieron la suerte de encontrarse. Después de ser novias por más de un año se casaron y actualmente son las mamás de Kennedy y Charlotte.
Las pequeñas tienen 4 y 2 años, nacieron a través del método ropa. Ahora viven en California, donde Christina es maestra en una escuela primaria y Katie trabaja en fianzas.
Son una familia muy activa en las redes, tienen un canal de youtube (Baby Bailey Mama Drama), donde cuentan su historia de amor, sus vivencias como madres, y sus viajes alrededor del mundo. También tienen su propia línea de ropa (@boldlookapparel), con frases y diseños ideales para familias homoparentales.
<<Nuestra principal prioridad en las redes es conectarnos con otras personas. Hemos encontrado una comunidad maravillosa compuesta por personas LBGTQ, también hemos conectado con personas que realizan tratamientos de reproducción asistida, y mucha gente que disfruta de viajar. Creo que la conexión con la comunidad en general es lo que la ha hecho exitosa>>.

Today is National Coming Out Day 🏳️🌈Coming out is definitely scary and for some, it is not an option due to where they live or how they feel inside. Coming out isn’t for everyone. Although Katie and I live in California, we are always «coming out» to people. Most of the time, we are open to everyone about being gay. However, there are many times when I have to ask myself, «should I come out right now?» It’s sad that even I sometimes, do not «come out» every chance I have because of my job. I know this might sound bad, but I have experienced unfair treatment in the past. Sometimes, coming out could mean more pain for me, and I would rather not endure that. This doesn’t mean I’m not proud of myself or of the beautiful family Katie and I have created, it means that I am choosing what is best for me and my family. My wife doesn’t want a wife who is sad and stressed. My kids don’t want that either. I want to come home and dedicate all of myself to them. They deserve that. They want a happy mom and wife and so sometimes, I choose to not «come out» at my job. For the most part, I do correct others when we are out in public and they assume I have a husband. We experience this ALL THE TIME. Just the other day we were in the airport and we corrected the woman who was helping us check in. We said we were married, not sisters. There was a long pause that seemed to last forever and then she responded with, «oh okay.» We stood there in silence until she was done printing our boarding passes. This could have gone a lot worse, but it was still awkward silence. I think it is good that our kids see this and that we do correct others (plus, the kids aren’t old enough to understand an awkward silence). I know this post isn’t what you were expecting. Even though I should always be out and proud, I just haven’t gotten to that comfort level after past experiences. Maybe one day I will get there again. Remember that it is okay to not come out and everyone has their way of handling it. I am still proud of who I am and if wasn’t for coming out to myself, my family and my friends, I would have never found Katie and had our two beautiful daughters. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Let’s get one thing straight…we are not! 🏳️🌈 ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Sometimes I feel like the world is changing and getting better at treating all forms of love equally, and then other days I feel like our FAMILY is not treated the same and well…it isn’t fair! There is no nice way of putting it. I don’t like wondering if we would be treated differently if we were a straight couple with two kids than a gay couple with two kids. There are some people who don’t even realize they are making comments that hurt our family and then there are others who know their comments are hurtful and intend them to be that way. Our kids are too young to completely understand right now so let’s hope that by the time they are older, things change and people are just good to one another 🙌 It’s sad that I’m not even shocked when I see things like the Hallmark incident happen. It’s almost 2020 and people still can’t accept all forms of love. Come on, society! Our family means everything to me. If we give a little love maybe we will get a little back ❤️ • • • • • • #Lovewinsalways #lovemakesafamily #queeractivists #sheswithher #lovehasnolabels #marriageequality #lovehasnogender #thisislove #twomomfamily #loveconquersall #laubergecarmel #carmelbythesea #carmelca #california101 #onlyincarmel #visitcarmel #carmelvalley #lgbtqtravel #neverstopexploring #lesbiancouple #twomoms #lesbiansofinstagram

🎄HUGE GIVEAWAY❗️ To celebrate this joyous season, WE ARE GIVING AWAY A HUGE PRESENT 🎁 3 VIALS OF SPERM + 2 YEARS STORAGE + FREE SHIPPING + FREE FULL UNLIMITED ACCESS 🙌 $5000 value! When we started our Reciprocal IVF journey, we had SO many questions. One of those questions was where do we get the sperm?! Our clinic gave us two recommendations and we went with @Fairfaxcryobank and here’s why: * Baby AND adult photos: Fairfax Cryo has pictures of their donors throughout their life! This means more than one photo! We knew so many things change as a child grows up. Someone might look nothing like their baby picture and for us, that’s important. We wanted a donor that looked like Katie. Katie looks nothing like her baby pictures so we knew baby pictures were not enough for us. We have enjoyed looking at our girls’ photos next to our donors. This is one of their amazing features that makes Fairfax chosen above the rest! * Facial matching: We dropped Katie’s picture into this feature and it generated a list of donors that had facial features like hers! * Large selection of high quality donors. They are the only sperm bank that does the most testing on their donors (Only 1 in 200 of their donor applicants are accepted due to their stringent requirements). I could go on and on but let’s talk about how to enter 🙌 We spent so much money on our journey and we are thrilled to help someone else grow their family and save money!
