Every family has a… AT LEAST ONE rainbow sheep! These are some more of their stories.
More Queer Families is the long-awaited follow-up to the premiere publication in Qommunicate Media’s LGBTQ+ True Stories Anthology series. Like its predecessor, More Queer Families reveals the profound personal memories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and non-binary parents, sons, daughters, husbands, wives, spouses, cousins, in-laws and chosen family, among others.
Here’s just some of what you’ll find inside More Queer Families:
- A father comes out as trans to his four-year-old son.
- A gay man juggles coparenting and cohabitation with his ex-wife and his lover.
- A queer mother discovers her young child is non-binary.
- A gay would-be adoptive dad struggles to find the “right” answers to adoption agency interview questions.
- A gay Canadian Jew navigates life on foreign soil among his new Muslim in-laws.
- A young lesbian discovers she’s not the only member of her family who’s in the closet.
Queer Families features the work of Isaiah Bonn, Amy Foster-Myer, Jonathan Freeman-Coppadge, William Henderson, Marissa Johnson, Robin Lanehurst, Sharon McDonell, Sean Patrick Mulroy, L.M. Neal, Chad Ratner, Ruth Rouff, Shawn Aveningo Sanders, E.F. Schraeder & Aliah Taheri.
