Product Description

Our cover family is from Atlanta, Georgia. Terrell and Jarius Joseph’s relationship isn’t a traditional “storybook” one. Nor is it a traditional LGBTQ one. From the beginning, they have charted their own course. Before meeting Jarius, Terrell exclusively dated women. Two children later, this cute couple is celebrating seven years together this fall.

Working with the Children’s Home Society of Florida, Mindy and Jay have been foster parents for two years now. In this issue Mindy admits she loves being a positive influence on children and the couple even include birth parents for doctor appointments and birthdays. Mindy and Jay believe children benefit from seeing all of the parents work together in their best interest.

In another family building feature, Morgan Coggins and her wife Sasha used Xytex for a sperm bank when they decided to start their parenting journey. In this feature, Coggins poses five questions to ask for everyone considering starting or growing their family with donor sperm.

Every July-August issue we feature a summer reads section featuring new and recommended books for LGBTQ parenting including new children’s books. Check out our list. Each July-August issue also highlights family travel and in this issue we offer six fun LGBTQ Family vacation ideas. These six ideas cover everything from petting farm animals to adventure outdoor sports. In addition, Ali Polizzi writes about her family trip to Bermuda aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line. Although Polizzi writes that no one batted an eye when she and her wife Amy mentioned they were a couple, she did end up being defensive when a crewmember asked if their possible transgender child Niky was a boy or girl.

GPM will reach its milestone 20th anniversary issue at the end of 2018. To kick off our anniversary we're revisiting some of the families we've featured in our previous issues with a series of family update articles. Michael Kearns and his daughter were first featured in one of Gay Parent Magazine’s earliest issues--November-December 1999 issue #7. Kearns’ is a HIV-positive single dad and admits to the whole act of choosing to adopt and raise a child as being ‘shockingly arrogant’, especially at a time when the efficacy of protease inhibitors (used to treat HIV/AIDS) was not clearly understood.

Editorial contributors to this issue also include Michael Coleman and Gary Hurtubise. 24 pages, 3.5 mb digital file. Buy now.
