Chosen Family

[ choh-zuhn fam-uh-lee, fam-lee ]

A common term in the LGBTQ+ community used to describe people who are not related by birth or marriage yet whose bond is like that of family. Oftentimes, LGBTQ+ people may find and build their chosen family out of necessity, due to a lack of understanding or acceptance, or by being kicked out or disowned, by one’s biological family.
