A leading gay organisation is looking for photogenic types willing to feature in their reports.

The International Lesbian and Gay Association of Europe wants volunteers willing to be photographed.

ILGA are looking for LGBT single parents with their children, LGBT couples with and without children, and larger family groups including two or more generations with LGBT and other family members, cross-generational couples, pregnant couples and so on.

“The idea is to illustrate the diversity of what a family means outside of the narrow definitions used in some quarters, and that these lifestyles are equally valid as loving supportive relationships,” explained photographer Michael Cheetham.

Some of the photo shoots will take place in locations such as the park or at home, others will be in a studio.

Models will be offered a selection of images and a print as thanks for their participation.

The photos will be used by ILGA in their campaign documents and reports.
