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.

December 1, 2014: In observance of World AIDS Day, excerpts from the book on the topic of parents with HIV/AIDS are posted here.

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. This site now serves as a partial archive of her work as a spokesperson and educator.

Here you will find information about Abigail’s book, Families Like Mine, as well as Abigail’s background and highlights of media coverage. If you are looking for advice and guidance for your family, check out the archived advice column for LGBT families. (And read the book, of course.)
