Gay men have always created their own families. While some replace the "blood" kin who have rejected or denied their sexual orientation, others intentionally choose to build new kinds of families, often ingeniously rewriting the rules society has prescribed. In this collection of powerful stories, Christopher Bram, Larry Duplechan, Michael Bronski, Andrew Hollran, and many others offer heartfelt assessments of the effort to create a place where one can belong.
