Paul Waring Presents Illustrated Book That Tackles Gay Issues
by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2013

Children's picture books depicting gay characters have become the most banned books in America. Even so, they have made a mark over the last two decades.

It is the next step in empowering the word gay. (more...)
