Raised by Unicorns

In recent years, the world has been saturated by endless blogs, articles, and books devoted to the subject of LGBTQ+ parenting. On the flip side, finding stories written by the children of LGBTQ+ parents is akin to searching for a needle in a haystack.

In 2018 I was selected to be one of 15 writers who shared her story of being raised by LGBTQ+ parents.

From Baby Boomers to Generation Z, our work features diverse stories that express the distinctiveness of our shared journey. It's visceral, raw, and not always pretty, but love is always the common thread.

Raised by Unicorns guides the reader through an empathetic journey that is nothing short of compelling and poignant.
