Get Used To It: Children Of Gay And Lesbian Parents
Myra Hauschild, Pat Rosier

As a lesbian who has brought up children I want this book for lesbian and gay parents and their children, and as a counter to the prejudice and fear promoted by the anti-gay voices that get media attention. —Pat Rosier

Sixteen young people are interviewed about their experiences of growing up with lesbian and gay parents. As one young person relates: ‘We’re a real family with our two dads.’ The interviews suggest that what matters most to children has little to do with their parents’ sexuality and more to do with loving, attentive parenting and adequate living standards. Essential reading for young people, teachers and anyone working with youth.

Marg Riley, React
