Shira Glassman My publisher is YA but my book that's due out at the end of the month, starring a lesbian mom with a baby, is classified as 'New Adult." I can't tell if it belongs here or not. She's in her early 20's.


message 2: by Rainbowheart (last edited Jan 25, 2017 10:24AM) (new)

Rainbowheart Just FYI, The Flower Girl Wore Celery has a lesbian cousin who's getting married to her partner, not a lesbian mother.


message 3: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Oops, thanks for the info!


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart No prob! Did you also want picture books on this list? I notice the description said "novels," so I held off. Also, I tried to stick to books where the MCs have lesbian moms. There are more books where they're parents of the MC's friends, but I wasn't sure if those would be significant enough characters.


message 5: by Melinda (new)

Melinda yes to picture books! and preferably parents of the protagonist, but OK to include books where they're not but the lesbian mothers of another character are significant enough characters that they're the focus of the plot, for example.


message 6: by Celeste (new)

Celeste Why is Phoebe and her Unicorn on this list? Phoebe's parents are hetero


message 7: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Good question. I noticed that person voted for a number of books, and I'm not sure any of them have lesbian mothers.

If you're positive about Phoebe and the Unicorn, I can go ahead and remove it.
