Title: Imag(in)ing the queer lesbian family
Author: Gabb, Jacqui
Abstract: Motherhood and lesbian sexuality are antithetical to each other within Western culture. One consequence of this dichotomy is that lesbian mothers are constantly denied any fixity of identity. Always being in a state of flux, we are caught in a continual process of becoming. This paper reflects on this fluidity, suggesting that queer mothering challenges prevailing notions of "the family."
