An account of the impact of growing up in a different kind of family, this book provides perspectives on gay parents by 20 people whose parents were gay, and whose ages range from 11 to 66. They vary widely in terms of class, race and social background, while painting a realistic picture of the life experiences of people who have grown up in a lesbian/gay family environment, and offering an evaluation of the positive and negative aspects of this upbringing. The text includes an interview with Nicholas Rea, MP, who was notorious and vilified for his support of lesbians and gays during the Clause 28 debate. Extensive appendices include empirical research conducted upon the children of lesbians and gays, a bibliography of relevant books for children in queer families, and contact addresses for support groups.
