Happy Father’s Day! Otherwise known as the day the most collect calls are made in America.
Modern families are popping up all across America, much to the chagrin of folks like the Southern Baptist Convention and Rick Santorum. The number of same-sex couples raising children rose from 8 percent in 2000 to 19 percent in 2009. There are nearly two million LGBT parents in America already, and the number continues to climb.
To celebrate great dads, we compiled some photos of happy families from Instagram. Take that, Santorum!
Scroll down to see pictures of gay dads and their adorable kiddos. And don’t forget to call home!
