ABOUT THE BOOK:
Invisible Families brings to light the family life of gay women of color — challenging long-standing ideas about racial identity, family formation, and motherhood. Drawing from interviews and surveys of one hundred black gay women in New York City, Invisible Families explores the ways that race and class have influenced how these women understand their sexual orientation, find partners, and form families.
