Dana Rudolph is the founder and publisher of Mombian, a GLAAD Media Award-winning blog for lesbian moms and other LGBT parents, covering a mix of parenting, politics, diversions, and resources. She also writes a regular “Mombian” column for several LGBT newspapers around the country, and has reported on a variety of other LGBT political and legal topics for both mainstream and LGBT publications. She has been a speaker at numerous LGBT and blogging events. She also created and hosts the annual Blogging for LGBTQ Families Day blog carnival, now in its ninth year, in which all LGBTQ bloggers and allies may participate by posting in support of LGBTQ families.
Dana began her career in Internet content development, strategy, and marketing during the first dotcom boom, and has worked at a startup, a Fortune 100 corporation, and a non-profit, in addition to her freelance work. Her current day job is as the online content manager for the National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum at the Wellesley Centers for Women, a program that trains teachers, parents, and community leaders to lead seminars that widen and deepen curricula and make communities more inclusive. (In her Mombian work, she speaks solely for herself, not her employer.) She balances parenting, job, and blogging in the Boston area with her spouse of 21 years and their 10-year-old son, who inspires her work.
