Zack’s Story: Growing Up with Same-Sex Parents.
Eleven-year-old Zack talks about his life with his mothers. Many color photographs show Zack at home, at school, at the Gay Pride Parade in New York City and with his dad and his dad’s other family.
The fictional account of a year and a half in Jack’s life, ending on his 16th birthday. It begins with the day Jack’s father tells him he is gay.
From the Notebooks of Melanin Sun.
Melanin Sun is almost 14 when his mother tells his she is a lesbian. Melanin’s struggle to deal with his own homophobia and his friend’s reaction is intensified by the fact that his African American mother is in love with a white woman.
These are just a couple of the books available to your middle schoolers. I have no idea how graphic the content of these books are.
Again, the schools have decided that they will be the arbiters of what's right and wrong. Parents input is not needed or wanted. Your kids will be taught that homosexuality is not only ok, but something special to be admired.
