I've just posted the new lines of wedding/ baby shower/ adoption invitations and already I am getting some questions about some of the example designs. Let me be clear for a moment:
My husband and I believe in the beauty and power of love. We shared our last names when we got married to represent our belief that in our relationship we are equal partners. We donate regularly to the Human Rights Campaign, are outspoken about our strong support for families of ALL kinds and makeups, and believe in the validity of love in its many forms.
To this end, I strive to make products that support and endorse equality. Almost all of my wedding invitation lines have one example of a heterosexual couple, and one of an LGBT couple. I have also tried to provide good non-heteronormative choices for families who are adopting or having children. I was hoping that this alone would make it clear how I feel about equality, but because I was asked if I had "accidentally" used two women's names on one invitation, I thought it was important that I be more direct.
I am very proud to support equality, even in this small way. If you feel similarly, know that your purchases from McLion Design supports my family's work for equality.
