H and I picked up Kate Reid's newest CD of music for LGBTQ families yesterday at Pride and listened to it today... We bawled through most most of the CD and laughed through many of those tears.... It is SO nice to see such representation of our families reflected in music for our kids and future kids. Plus references to "radical sperm donor dads" in kid's songs are just awesome.
H. and I also like Kate's other dy.kefolk music particularly songs like "Closet Femme", "Dirty Girl", and "Captian Cupcake". Hope some of you also enjoy and it makes you smile.
