7 Reasons We love Ovaries

Robin Hopkins and Jaimie Kelton are the co-hosts of the podcast If These Ovaries Could Talk, and authors of a book If These Ovaries Could Talk: The Things We’ve Learned About Making an LGBTQ Family coming out in September 2020. They’re moms, they’re lesbians (who are married to other ladies) and each have two kids. And they’ve made it their mission to talk about LGBTQ families.

Their new book is based on dozens of interviews, full of insights and stories addressing recurring questions about LGBTQ families that came up during their podcast. Such as, choosing an egg donor, sperm donor, or surrogate, adoption and foster care, navigating trans fertility, growing up with gay parents, being out as a family, talking to your kids about where they come from, and the legalese of LGBTQ’s.

The book includes stories from actor and comedian, Judy Gold, State Senator, Zach Wahls, poet, activist, and author, Staceyann Chin, America’s Got Talent alum, Julia Scotti, and Bravo TV’s The Abbys.

The result is an informative, in-depth journey that is equal parts funny, serious, happy, sad, celebratory, cautionary, and powerful.
