This children’s picture book will be the first story from our next series, A Pocketful of Pride. This series within the Pigeonhole Books collection features stories about children from families with same-sex parents.
Synopsis of Wishful Wedding:
Papa’s sister is getting married today! Daddy helps me with my flower girl bouquet. We witness in delight and giggle with glee but deep down in our hearts, we’re sad you see? When will my fathers be able to wed? I can only hope for change, in the future ahead.
With Ireland becoming the first country to legalise gay marriage by popular vote, it only highlights a social revolution much needed in society today. The United of States of America have yet to pass Federal Law in the Supreme Court whilst in Australia it remains a contentious issue and the only English speaking nation not to follow suit.
This book aims at bringing awareness to children about marriage inequality in a gentle manner. We hope for nothing more than people who love each other to have the legal right to declare their lifelong commitment to each other.
