The Family in 'The Family Equality Council' Gets a New Addition

Family Equality Council, the national organization dedicated to LGBT families, welcomed a new member to the organization last Wednesday.
At 9:17 p.m., executive director Jennifer Chrisler gave birth to a boy, Matthew. He weighed in at 5 pounds, one ounce, and measured 18 inches long. He joins 10-year-old twin brothers Tim and Tom in the family.
Some might remember Chrisler as the LGBT rights leader who offered Tony Perkins, head of the antigay Family Research Council, an invitation to her home after he said on CNN that he'd never been to the home of a same-sex couple.
“I don’t think that I’ll change his mind, buy I do think that we might be able to open his heart a little bit,” she said at the time.
To write congratulations to Jennifer and her spouse, Cheryl Jacques, visit the Family Equality Council's website.
