Chosen Family

Chosen Family

(compound noun)

Chosen family is the concept of a family made out of those who are unaffiliated by blood. Chosen families have been around since the beginning of time, especially in marginalized communities where biological families are broken up by both external and internal bigotry.

e.g. Dee Dee’s chosen family has been nothing but accepting of their non-binary identity.
