A Family by Any Other Name PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Family by Any Other Name free pdf At no other time in history have lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBT) relationships and families been more visible or numerous. This anthology recognizes and celebrates this moment by exploring what the idea of "family" means to people today, through personal essays about the broad range of relationships they create. A Family by Any Other Name features stories about coming out of the closet and dating, marriage and parenting, and divorce and coping with the death of a spouse. The essays are by turns funny, provocative, and intelligent, but all are moving and honest. Including a wide range of perspectives on queer relationships and families -- there are essays 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 -- in one book, this collection offers honest and moving real-life stories about relationships and creating families in the 21st century.
