Description - Raising My Rainbow by Lori Duron
A poignant, heartbreaking, and at times laugh-out-loud funny memoir, the first of its kind, about joys an challenges of raising a gender-creative child
Raising My Rainbow is Lori Duron's frank, heartfelt, and brutally funny account of her and her family's adventures, along with the heartbreak and happiness, that come with raising a gender-creative son. Whereas her older son, Chase, is a Lego-loving, sports-playing boy's boy, her younger son, C.J., would much rather twirl around in a pink sparkle tutu, with a Disney Princesss in each hand while singing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi." C.J. is gender variant or gender nonconforming or gender creative, whichever you prefer. They all mean that Lori has a boy who likes girl stuf, really likes girl stuff. He floats on the gender variation specturm from super-macho-masculine on the left all the way to super-girly-feminine on the right. He's not all pink and not all blue. He's a muddled mishmash or a rainbow creation, depending on how you look at it. Lori and her family choose to see the rainbow, not the muddle. Written in Lori's uniquely witty and warm voice and based on her incredibly popular blog of the same name, Raising My Rainbow is the unforgettable story of her wonderful family as they navigate the often challenging but never dull privilege of raising a slightly effeminate, possibly gay, totally fabulous son.
