  • The Queer Parent's Primer: A Lesbian and Gay Families' Guide to Navigating Through a Straight World (2001)
    More and more gays and lesbians are choosing to parent, and the challenges that accompany this choice can be difficult. The Queer Parent's Primer helps make the endeavor a positive, productive one. Through examples and interactive exercises, author Stephanie Brill encourages a proactive approach, with concrete suggestions on how to present the alternative family in public and private arenas and how to help children of these new unions resist gender stereotyping. Topics include creating a healthy family, coming out for good, finding culturally sensitive childcare and schools, and making decisions about spirituality and family celebrations. Also covered are single parenting, breaking up, and the legal aspects of protecting these special families.

Reflecting the unique experience of lesbian mothers in a manner never before addressed, The Essential Guide to Lesbian Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth is both practical, providing lesbians with everything they need to know to become mothers, and inspirational, addressing the social issues surrounding lesbian pregnancy in an empowering manner. Comprehensive and indispensable, this book will serve as a literary midwife to the growing number of lesbian mothers.
