Pride and Joy : A guide for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans parents, Paperback / softback Book

Pride and Joy : A guide for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans parents Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


There have always been lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) parents.

But now there is a 'gayby boom'. Changes in social attitudes, the law and medical technology mean that more LGBT people are becoming parents, and living proud and open family lives.

Yet there are still few role models. Pride and Joy is full of stories, advice and real-life experience from LGBT parents and their children.

Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, sometimes surprising, every story sheds new light on what it's like for LGBT people raising children in the UK and Ireland today. Pride and Joy is positive and practical. It covers everything from starting a family, dealing with schools, talking with children about different families, and maintaining an LGBT identity as a parent. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to better understand issues facing LGBT families including parents or prospective parents; extended families and friends; and social workers, teachers and other professionals.
