Overview

A Family by Any Other Name: Exploring Queer Relationships by Bruce Gillespie

Selected as a Finalist for the 27th Annual Lambda Literary Awards for Best LGBT Anthology and Winner of the Silver Medal for Gay / Lesbian / Bi / Trans Non-Fiction at the 2015 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards

At no other time in history have lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) relationships and families been more visible or numerous. A Family by Any Other Name recognizes and celebrates this advance by exploring what “family” means to people today. The anthology includes a wide range of perspectives on queer relationships and families—there are stories on coming out, same-sex marriage, adopting, having biological kids, polyamorous relationships, families without kids, divorce, and dealing with the death of a spouse, as well as essays by straight writers about having a gay parent or child. These personal essays are by turns funny, provocative, and intelligent, but all are moving and honest. Including writers from across North America, this collection offers honest and moving real-life stories about relationships and creating families in the twenty-first century.
