Abstract:

"Here are the stories of 29 couples - women whose love has endured in a world that too often devalues their commitment to each other and denies their very right to be together. In her foreword, Candace Gingrich suggests that the openness with which these couples love is a celebration that affirms the gay rights movement. In original essays and photographs, these women speak of how they met and fell in love, the challenges they have faced together, and the joys and triumphs, sorrows and setbacks that every family must face." "One couple shares the story of raising a child in a two-mother household. Another couple relates their struggle to overcome pressures from family and friends who sought to prevent their interracial union. Professional golfer Muffin Spencer-Devlin discusses her manic depression and how it has affected her relationship with Lynda Roth. And Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, founders of the Daughters of Bilitis, look back on more than forty-five years as the mothering couple behind the lesbian civil-rights movement."--Jacket.
