Resource List, ideas? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
i think these used to be sticky:

genderqueer parent names

queer positive book list

And, do you think it would be possible to divide the list into categories?  I know it would be easier to initially see discussion threads on Queer Parenting that are stickied to be distinct from other external resource lists.

I was just in an awesome class on lgbtq books for kids and teens and they mentioned the online literary magazine Rainbow Rumpus: www.rainbowrumpus.org. It's written for kids with queer parents and has lots on there: book reviews, coloring pages and activities for kids, plus stuff for teens and adults.

I'd like to see a list and/or discussion of books for parents.  Anything queer friendly or books members have used from TTC and fertility to parenting issues like discipline and eating.  I went to the bookstore today and had to search through fertility books to see if any of them had anything substantial about DI or specifically queer issues.  I was greatly disappointed by the bible of a book called "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" that everyone seems so excited about.  IUI was only brought up on a few pages and I couldn't find anything about frozen sperm.  I went to the big library downtown one day a couple weeks ago and checked out:

 

"The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy for Lesbians" by Rachel Pepper (read)

"A Donor Insemination Guide: Written By and For Lesbian Women" by Marie Mohler and Lacy Frazer (working on reading)

"Baby Steps: How Lesbian Alternative Insemination is Changing the World" by Amy Agigian (not read)

"Mommies, Daddies, Donors, Surrogates: Answering Tough Questions and Building Strong Familes" by Diane Ehrensaft (not read)

And one other one about ART and it's social and scientific impacts that I left at a friend's house a week ago, eek!  (it was really good what I got to, lots of information but not relevant to ttc)

 

With my gift card I bought "The Complete Organic Pregnancy" by Deirdre Dolan and Alexander Zissu (so I can freak out about all the toxins in the world...)

 

I have read or perused various parenting books as a professional nanny for the last 5 years and have lots more parenting books I could add to the list.

 

I'd love to know what other people have read!

I'm so sorry but I must have overlooked this before. I just divided the Resource list into Websites/Books and Discussion threads. 

 

Thank you all! orngbiggrin.gif
