Raised by Unicorns: Stories from People with LGBTQ+ Parents

by Frank Lowe

For the past few decades, and more frequently in recent years, the world has been nearly oversaturated by the hundreds of blogs, books, and articles devoted to the subject of LGBTQ+ parenting. On the flipside, finding stories written by the children of LGBTQ+ parents is like searching for a needle in a haystack. Now that we live in a world that is more accepting than ever of “non-traditional” families, it’s time to create a literary space for this not-so-unique, shared, but completely individual, experience.

In Raised by Unicorns: Stories from Children with LGBTQ+ Parents, Frank Lowe has carefully edited an anthology that reflects on the upbringing of children in all kinds of LGBTQ+ families. Rather than presenting a single account, it features many different stories to express the uniqueness of this shared experience and of each family. It’s visceral and raw, not always pretty, and not always glamorous, but love is always the common thread.

Ultimately, Lowe portrays a true representation of this particular niche of the human experience⎯a snapshot of the time we are living in now. Raised by Unicorns guides the reader through an empathetic journey and is nothing short of compelling and poignant. We’ve all heard the phrase “raised by wolves,” and now we have a window into the world of being “Raised by Unicorns.”
