LGBTQ+ people have more options than ever before when it comes to starting a family, but a lack of both focused information and mainstream representation can leave parents, prospective parents, friends, and relatives in the dark.

Authors Lotte Jeffs and Stu Oakley spoke to dozens of experts and queer families, and this hugely needed book is the product of those conversations and their own experiences of becoming parents through IUI and adoption respectively.

Ninety percent of queer parenting is just . . . parenting but being LGBTQ+ when you're a parent does bring with it a host of conundrums that mainstream guides—which tend to assume heterosexuality—do not address.

From adoption, surrogacy, fertility treatment, and other routes to parenthood, to donors, trans parenting, how to deal with family-focused homophobia, coming out at the school gates, and much more, The Queer Parent is a groundbreaking toolkit for LGBTQ+ parents, parents-to-be, and anyone looking to support their journey. It is a book that redefines the family for the modern age.
