Turning hits into hits: Anti-gay attacks are like gay literature's Oprah

by Jeremy Hooper

gay-kids-booksWant the best recommendations for LGBT-inclusive children's book? Well Mombian blogger and G-A-Y friend Dana Rudolph knows exactly where you should look: On the e-list of the anti-gay Massachusetts Family Institute, who has inadvertently helped Dana publicize four great literary resources for pro-equality parents/kids/friends/allies:

Yesterday, I posted a recent column in which I reviewed several new books and films for and about LGBT families. It turns out the conservative Massachusetts Family Institute, which took the lead fighting against marriage equality here in the Bay State, didn’t like it so much—or maybe they did.

Not only that, but it's a great current list of book publishers for those of us who have a nice inclusive children's book languishing in our file cabinets. Thanks MFI!

Thanks, Jeremy!

And a note for your readers who may have an interest: I should also put in a good word for Sarah Brannen's Uncle Bobby's Wedding, which I didn't include in my latest article only because I'd included it in a previous such compilation. It's the one about the gay guinea pigs; I think you've covered the controversy about it. (The usual blather from the right.) The great thing about it is that it's not "about" being gay; it's about a little girl wondering if her favorite uncle will still have time for her after he gets married. It's a universal theme that just happens to have gay protagonists.
