Praise for The Kids:
"In this book of powerful photographs and moving texts, Gabriela Herman traces the reality of gay families in America: who the kids are, how they think of their parents, what they look like. It's a testament to diversity, inclusion, and integrity, a book full of both pride and introspection, an important document for our time."
--Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree

"I am so grateful for Gabriela Herman's book. For a long time many of us kids of LGBTQ parents have felt caught between two worlds, a little too queer for the straight community and at times a little too straight for the queer community. But here, in this beautiful collection of portraits, there is irrefutable evidence that we are, in fact, our own community. Though our origin stories are thrillingly diverse we have all known the sting of stigma and we all share a radical perspective on what family and gender can be. It's exciting to see 'the kids' now grown up, stepping out of the shadows and taking on the world."
--Alysia Abbott, author of Fairyland

"I vividly remember the first time I saw Gabriela's portraits of The Kids . . . that feeling of connection, being seen, and being given a voice through this stunning visual articulation of who we are--as diverse as 6 million people can be, as united in our shared experiences as any who share a meaningful identity can be. This is more than a book of portraits. It is a narrative of a culture--our culture--created by a photographer who clearly knows our souls."
--Annie Van Avery, executive director of COLAGE

"Here, in Gabriela Herman's amazing collection of photographs and their companion stories, are our sons and daughters, in all their complex, contradictory, celebratory splendor. Inspiring, meditative, and heartfelt, The Kids shows our children for the precious souls they are, and extols the glories of their diverse, human families."
--Jennifer Boylan, author of She's Not There and Long Black Veil
