About the Book



An "alphabet book of LGBTQ+ vocabulary for kids of all ages"--Provided by publisher.



Book Synopsis



A Moms Demand Action Book Club Pick

"The perfect way to teach your kiddos LGBTQ+ vocab while celebrating the beauty of embracing yourself and others."--KIWI Magazine

Now in board book format, a joyful alphabet book of LGBTQ+ vocabulary for kids of all ages!

A playdate extravaganza transforms into a joyful celebration of friendship, love, and identity as four young friends sashay out of all the closets, dress up in a wardrobe fit for kings and queens, and discover the wonders of their imagination. In The GayBCs, M. L. Webb's playful illustrations and lively poems delight in the beauty of embracing one's truest self--from A is for Aro and Ace to F is for Family to T is for Trans.

The GayBCs is a heartwarming and accessible gift to show kids and adults alike that every person is worthy of being celebrated. A bonus glossary offers opportunities for further discussion of complete terms, communities, and inclusive identities.

Please stop pushing sexuality on children. Kids do not need to know who you are sleeping with.

I couldn’t believe my eyes for a second and had to read this and my gosh! I can’t believe Target even put this on the shelf. Fortunately the majority believe this is not okay to read to their children. I’m glad to see many reviews that have the same opinion and the hundreds of thumbs down to the 5 star reviews. Parents need to start standing against this and getting loud.
