This collection of 25 personal essays from a small press in Portland, Oregon, features many Portland-area and Oregon writers, including Ariel Gore, A. M. O’Malley, Judith Barrington, Ben Anderson-Nathe, Sailor Holladay, and Mel Wells. The contributors, many of whom live in rural, conservative areas, reflect on the joys, hardships, and complexities of gay and lesbian families and parenting in an era when, despite the legalization of gay marriage, homophobia is still entrenched in our culture.

Untangling the Knot: Marriage, Relationships & Identity, an anthology of essays and creative nonfiction, delves past the mainstream focus on marriage equality—beyond the knot— to examine the broad scope of issues facing members of the LGBTQ community. The collection sheds light on what marriage equality actually means for queer communities. By confronting the concept of tradition through personal discourse, this volume seeks to create conversation amongst the diverse members of the LGBTQ community and their straight allies to prompt a larger, grander, and more realistic vision of what marriage equality really means for those living in the United States. Untangling the Knot: Marriage, Relationships & Identity includes the voices of many individuals who are underrepresented in the modern discourse surrounding LGBTQ rights, and these unique perspectives may change the direction of that conversation for good.
