The Gender Centre Library

To borrow from our library you will first need to become a member of the library. To join our library you will need to provide identification (perhaps your driver's license or pension card), and a telephone contact. This information will be reviewed every time you borrow a book.

You will be able to borrow one book at a time, for up to two weeks at a time. This is due to the limited number of books available and the high demand from the community. Please take good care of our books, many of our resources have been removed or taken from our service and not returned. This is very unfortunate as they are part of quite a unique resource in New South Wales

Our books are purchased in limited quantities and appear on our Book List when available. If there is a book you feel the Gender Centre should have in our Library, please let us know.

You may request to submit a Lend Request to Borrow a  Book from our Library from the Catalogue below.

We also have a link to buy the Books on Amazon if you would like to.

You may also consider donating a book to the Centre if you feel it may be a valuable resource to others in our community.

Product Description
Straight talk for Gay parents - a practical guide to parenting challenges * Includes examples and interactive exercises to help you through conflicts, define and protect your family, and celebrate and nourish a proud and loving household * Covers the practical realities of laying a foundation for healthy parenting, coming out once and for all, finding culturally sensitive schools, and making decisions about spirituality and family celebrations * Also includes a section on special concerns of single parents, the complications of breaking up, and the legal concerns of protecting your family * The author is both parenting educator and a lesbian mother Today, more and more gays and lesbians are choosing to reinvent what family means by making up their own minds how they would like to go about having children and raising them. The practical challenges these families face are enormous, including the all-too-familiar consequences of a society-wide disconnect that insists on equating 'family values' with various forms of homophobic intolerance. The Queer Parent's Primer is an empathetic guide that offers gay and lesbian parents real-life parenting solutions to the many practical challenges they face.
