‘When my mamas fight, they go on long car rides…”

As you might recall, I’m working on an anthology of personal essays about LGBT families and relationships for TouchWood Editions. Part of that work includes keeping an eye out for any new research or work on this topic, as it might lead me to a new writer to enlist in this project or inform the collection in some way.

That’s how I came across this video yesterday. It’s a spoken-word performance by Noah St. John called “The Last Mile,” and it’s about his two mothers. Simply put, it’s a beautiful piece, and I defy you to watch it without getting a lump in your throat.
