VBB 243 Lee Wind: What Defines Motherhood When Both Parents Are Gay, And Male?
Lee Wind (he/him) is an Author and the Founder of the award-winning Blog I’M HERE. I’M QUEER. WHAT THE HELL DO I READ? Lee’s Blog has over 3 million page loads from over 100 countries! Lee holds a master’s degree in education from Harvard and writes stories to empower kids and teens to be their authentic selves and change the world. In 2022 we had Lee as our guest for PRIDE month and learned that he and his husband of more than 25 years have a grown daughter. With that knowledge, Lee was the first name that came to mind when I had this thought [slash] question — what happens to our idea of motherhood as exclusive to a woman when two men are parenting a child? What is motherhood when a female is not part of the family picture? This conversation is very personal and intimate, and we feel privileged to have learned so much from Lee. We hope you will, too. This is the perfect transitional conversation for us as we exit May — Motherhood Month and enter June — PRIDE month.
