“A profound book that captures many aspects of gay parenting that I have experienced personally. I strongly recommend Families Like Mine to any gay person with children and those who are considering parenthood.”
NPR’s Morning Edition: Interpreting the research on kids of gay parents.
Welcome to FamiliesLikeMine.com, a website created by Abigail Garner, author of the Lambda Literary finalist, Families Like Mine: Children of Gay Parents Tell It Like It Is.
This site launched in 1999 with the mission to decrease isolation for people who have parents who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT), and bring voice to their experiences. Although Abigail has stepped back from her involvement, this site now serves as a partial archive of her work as a spokesperson and educator for more than a decade.
Here you will find information about Abigail’s book, Families Like Mine, additional resources, as well as Abigail’s background and highlights of media coverage she has received. If you are brand new to the topic, frequently asked questions about LGBT families might be the best place to start.
If you are looking for advice and guidance for your family, check out "Answers from Abigail", archived advice for LGBT Families. (And order the book, of course.)
