From the WGBH Forum Network: "Based on eight years of activism and interviews, Abigail Garner debunks the anti-gay myth that children of gay parents grow up damaged and confused in her new book, Families Like Mine: Children of Gay Parents Tell It Like It Is. At the same time, Garner's book refutes the popular pro-gay sentiment that these children turn out "just like everyone else." Using a rich blend of journalism and memoir, Garner offers empathetic yet unapologetic opinions about the gifts and challenges of being raised in families that are often labeled "controversial." Abigail Garner is a writer, speaker and activist who is dedicated to a future of equality for LGBT families and communities. She speaks from her own experience of having a gay dad who came out to her when she was five years old. Combining her own stories with those of other young people, Abigail brings a strong voice to a population of children from LGBT families that often seems invisible."
