10 ways pets are better than people

LGBTQ families include furry kids in the mix more often than our non-queer counterparts. These Queer Atlanta pet people have even shown what that looks like.

And before you write in, this just for fun, folks, as a celebration of our fur babies. Enjoy both your pets and your humans to your hearts' content with our blessing!
