Overview

This handsome volume combines interviews and photographs to document the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered parents and their children. It allows all of the family members to speak candidly about their lives, their relationships, and the ways in which they have dealt with the pressures of homophobia.Included in the book are people from a diverse array of racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds, representing a wide range of family structures. Together, they provide clear evidence that family roles and responsibilities need not be based on gender, and that children thrive in an atmosphere in which understanding, respect, and love transcend the prejudices of the day.

Pat Griffin

A terrific addition to a growing body of literature on lesbian and gay families. . . .The first-person narratives address stereotypes and misconceptions about lesbian and gay families in an engaging and open manner that is completely disarming and touching.
