Editorial Reviews. From Library Journal. Part of the new series entitled "Between Men-Between www.slimandfit.eu: Families We Choose: Lesbians, Gays, Kinship ( Between Men~Between Women: Lesbian and Gay Studies) eBook: Kath Weston: .
Description:Weston argues that "chosen" families cannot be understood apart from the families in which their members grew up. Conventional views of family have depicted gays and lesbians as exiles from the realm of kinship. She presents interviewees' stories of discovering their sexual identities and of their subsequent relations with straight families. Publisher's Summary Kath Weston draws upon fieldwork and interviews conducted in the San Francisco Bay area to explore the ways in which gay men and lesbians are constructing their own notions of kinship by drawing on the symbolism of love, friendship and biology. She also discusses changes in gay communities that have helped to shape contemporary discourse about the gay families. Finally, she addresses the political implications of chosen families.
