Shoe? Meet the Other Foot.

One of my favorite bloggers outside of the Lesbian Family blogosphere is Isabel, of Hola, Isabel. By simple description, we might be utterly different — she’s a churchgoing west-coaster whose husband is building their second house from scratch! I only recently became a regular churchgoer, live in the south, and […]

*shocker* Lesbian Parents Just as Good as Straight Ones

Like Trista, I had hoped that my return to LF would be with a much longer and interesting post than this one, but alas, it is not. I did, however, want to share this tidbit from your neighbours to the North. A study, (commissioned back in 2003 when Canadians were […]

A Starry Coverlet of Velvet Possibility

Someone suggested to me that I write this week on trying to have a sex life with my partner while raising a toddler. I think she thought this would be a hard thing to do. Not the writing about it, goodness knows I can write about sex as long as […]

Black History Month

Well, I’m a week late, but Happy Black History Month! A former student of mine succinctly sums up my thoughts on the month. She writes, “Black History Month (BHM) became a bore for me a while ago, not just because of the regurgitated Marcus, Malcolm, Martin mantra, but because this […]

Third-party reproduction

Melissa, aka The Town Criers, is starting a chapter on assisted reproduction for her book. She’s particularly interested in interviewing folks, among others,  who used assisted conception because they are in a same-sex relationship.
