‘MAMA DRAGON STORY PROJECT: ESSAYS FROM MOTHERS WHO LOVE THEIR LGBT CHILDREN’ BY KIMBERLY ANDERSON

Posted On 01 May 2016 by Suzie Lynde - Twenty women, many with Latter Day Saints or Mormon ties, share essays of love and support for their LGBT children. Portraits of each mother show their fiery resolve as they bear the title of “Mama Dragon.” Loving LGBT children within a strict religious environment poses some challenges; reconciling those challenges and moving forward in peace is the focus of this book. Showing mothers, and other allies, that they can wrestle with these challenges, soften attitudes at home, and openly accept their LGBT child is the reason for these essays and portraits.
