Rainbow Colors, Rainbow Families: An Interview With Children's Book Author Michael Genhart

This endearing and diverse book is perfect for young readers. How did you go about deciding what story to tell for this younger audience? Michael Genhart: The inspiration for these books was really a number of things coming together: the 50 th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots [for Love is Love ], the 40 th anniversary of the Rainbow Flag [for Rainbow ], and the explosion of rainbow families that we are seeing across the nation and world. I wrote Love Is Love first to show that queer families are more similar to hetero families than they are different: kids loving their parents and parents loving their kids. Of course, I also wrote these books as a gay dad too. The clinical psychologist in me also wanted to have books out in the world that showed being queer, and being in a LGBTQ family, as a normal experience. In particular, I wanted very young kids toddlers to see just how normal having two moms or two dads can be.
