Frank Lowe - Raised by Unicorns: Stories from People with LGBTQ+ Parents - with Emily Grubbs, Kate Hillyer, and Jenny Rain

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 17, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Since the 1980s the number of children in the U.S. raised by queer-identified households has risen from a few thousand to some six million. While gay parenting has gotten increasing attention, little has been paid to the experiences of children of lesbian mothers and gay fathers. Aiming to represent “every situation possible,” Lowe, Twitter’s @GayAtHomeDad, put together this groundbreaking anthology of stories by people raised in LGBTQ+ families. Diverse in age, orientation, and experience, the contributors speak out about fear and shame and discuss their struggle with erasure. Many also worry about how to claim membership in the LGBTQ community as they establish independent lives away from their LGBTQ homes. Lowe will be joined by contributors Emily Grubbs, Kate Hillyer, and Jenny Rain.
