Love Is Love by Michael Genhart, Ken Min

 

It's love that makes a family

When a boy confides in his friend about bullies saying he doesn't have a real family, he discovers that his friend's parents—a mom and a dad—and his two dads are actually very much alike.

Dr. Michael Genhart's debut story is the perfect resource to gently discuss discrimination with kids. This sweet and straightforward story shows that gay families and straight families and everything in between are all different kinds of normal. What makes a family real is the love that is shared.

 

Editorial Reviews

"Love is Love graciously calls into focus the fact that LGBTQ families are full of the same main ingredient as their peers' families: love. In a day and age when we tend to focus on our differences, Love is Love is here to remind us that the love of family is a shared value across cultures and family structures, and it gives our children the language they need explain that." - Amanda Hopping-Winn, Chief Program Officer, Family Equality Council

"A heartfelt affirmation of queer love... A strong message." - Kirkus

"Love Is Love makes plain the truth of its title for all kids and parents. Children and young adults still face harassment because they have LGBTQ parents. In accessible and gentle language, Love Is Love tells the simple story of these families...spoiler alert...they are just like every other kind of family. The point is no child should ever feel stigmatized for having LGBTQ parents and by embracing all families, we are elevating our own and proving that love is love." - Kate Kendell, Esq., Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights
