I started googling, because, as Ace pointed out, the community doesn't have an icon. I didn't find much right off the bat, but I was thinking anyway. We need a logo!
So...design one if you will and post it in the comments and either I'll pick one (assuming there are choices!) or everyone will love one and that's the one we'll use. :)

i had an image in my mind of sort of thick-stick-figure people (like in the universal signs for "pedestrian crossing", "men's/women's restroom", "stairwell", etc.), adults and children, done in rainbow colors... but i can't come up with a combination of sizes and genders that doesn't leave somebody out.

*nod* I think using people is right out...there's just no way to be properly inclusive in a 100x100 pixel icon.
I was thinking about joined hands, maybe rainbowed in a cool way? It's kind of been done, but, then, most everything has. (Saw a "Family Tree" GLBT group that had a tree with rainbow leaves, for example.)

how about the kind of design where the hands form a knot or circle? each hand is grasping the wrist of the one next to it. something like this, only as a drawing, not as a photo - maybe each hand a different color, and a rainbow-colored heart in the center?

*nod* Yes! Although a heart might push it over the edge of cheesy for a lot of people...I wonder what symbols there are that might relate to family that we could put in the center? *plans to google later* Or we could do the triangle...

While I can picture it in my head, my artistic abilities are limited. :D
