I'm reading an interesting book called A Queer Thing Happened to America: And What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been. It was a total accident that I started reading a book like this (that is ridiculously anti-homosexual).
The front cover looks like this:
So I thought it was about gay rights and how far homosexuals have come in this country over the years. I was pretty confused when I started reading about the “gay agenda” and how gays were trying to destroy marriage. I was like whattttt? So I started skimming ahead to see what else this book had in store for me. I then came across a list of gay-friendly kids books. What an awesome resource! Thanks, Dr. Brown, you are the inspiration behind this post.
A quick search on Amazon turned up quite a few LGBT friendly kid books.
If you purchase a book via these links, I will earn a small commission.
Using a search engine, I found these sites that also have LGBT friendly kid books:
In the book, A Queer Thing Happened to America, these books are also mentioned:
One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dads, by Johnny Valentine.
Oh the Things Mommies Do! What Could Be Better Than Having Two?, by Crystal Tomkins and Lindsey Evans
Emma and Meesha My Boy: A Two Mom Story, by Kaitlyn Considine
Two Daddies and Me, by Robbie Ann Packard
A Family Alphabet Book, by Bobbie Combs
Molly's Family, by Nancy Garden
Felicia's Favorite Story, by Leslea Newman
If you browse reviews on Amazon of this book, you may see statements like “I can say that there is no hatred or bigotry in his heart towards the gay community, only that true love and tender concern that God Himself has for them.”, and “Michael Brown does a great job pulling out God's heart on the matter of homosexuality. It is done in a non-judgmental, factual way, that brings to light what the Bible actually says.” — Yet when describing one of the books listed above (Oh the Things Mommies Do! What Could Be Better Than Having Two?), the author states “written by Crystal Tomkins with illustrations by “her wife” Lindsey Evans.” Mocking their relationship is a great way to show love. No?
I will be writing a full review on this book if I can ever wade through the bullshit and finish it, but for now I have to give it a big thumbs down for bigotry and homophobic tendencies. If that changes, I'll be sure to let you know.
I am very happy to have found LGBT friendly books for kids. We are expanding our bookshelf this summer and will definitely be including some of them!
