Proud to share that #AB1041, the Chosen Family Act, passed the Assembly!

AB 1041 would expand the definition of family to allow workers to take time off to care for their "designated person"—more accurately reflecting today's diverse families, esp. in the LGBTQI community. (1/4)
As my colleague, & proud co-author of #AB1041, @BauerKahan pointed out: CA is home to so many diverse, multi-generational families—it isn't always biological family who is there to care for children in a time of need.

She shared her beautiful, personal story of "My Diane." (2/4)
And as my other colleague @AsmChrisWard so eloquently put it, #AB1041 reflects California’s values: accepting & appreciating people for who they are, as well as who they love as family — and ensuring that our workplace policies take our beautiful diversity into account. (3/4)

わかっていたつもりでわかっていなかった。とくに #RinaSawayama さんの #ChosenFamily を聴いてから問い直していた「LGBTQ+」の『Q』の意味。

以前から #EltonJohn が ”Proud to be Queer”と主張していたことは知っていた。でも「LGBTQ+」の『Q』にダブルミーニングがあるとは知らなかった。最近は妻の方が、YouTubeでLGカップルの動画を観て詳しくなっていた。知るってことは大切だ。

We don’t need to be related to relate
We don’t need to share genes or a surname
You are, you are, my chosen, chosen family

血の繋がりがなくても かかわり合えばいい
遺伝子や名前が同じでなくても 気にしなければいい
あなたは 私の選んだ家族なのだから…
So what if we don’t look the same?
We’ve been going through the same thing
You are, you are, my chosen, chosen family

あなたは あなたは 私の選んだ家族なのだから…
Hand me a pen and I’ill rewrite the pain
When you’re ready we can turn the page together
Open a bottle, it’s time we celebrate

落ち着いたら 一緒にページをめくろう
ボトルを開けて 今を祝おう…

A “safe space” should be where you are honest and vulnerable — a place where you can be your whole self without apology. But if your #safespace empowers your mental illness, enables your addiction, or encourages your self-destructive destructive behavior, it’s not safe at all.
If your #chosenfamily likes to lick your wounds and wants to play with your demons, but doesn’t actually help you toward healing (or worse, feels betrayed by your growth), then perhaps they’re not a very good choice.
Don’t confuse a place that is comfortable and welcoming to you with a place that is safe and good for you.
