              Big Familia follows Juan Guti rrez, a self-employed single father, as he navigates a tumultuous year of inescapable change. His daughter, Stella, is on the verge of moving away to college; his lover, Jared, is pressing him for commitment; and his favorite watering hole--a ramshac...kle dive presided over by Bob the Bartender--is transforming into a karaoke hotspot. The story is set in a neighborhood that is also changing, gentrification inciting the ire of the established community. Upon the unexpected death of one of the bar's regulars, Juan is sent reeling, and a series of upheavals follow as he both seeks and spurns intimacy, pondering the legacy of distant parents and a failed marriage and grappling with his sexuality--all the while cycling and dating, drinking at Nicks Lounge, and parenting a determined and defiant child-become-woman. When his incarcerated father dies and Stella reveals she's pregnant, Juan is forced to examine the emotional bonds that both hold and hinder him, to reassess his ideas of commitment, of friendship, of love. His encounters with various characters--his mother, his ex-wife, a middle-aged punker, an aspiring acupuncturist, a dapper veteran--lead Juan to the realization that he himself must change to thrive. This is a story of making family and making mistakes, of rending and of mending. As a Latinx queer father with a mixed-race daughter, Juan exemplifies the ways identity connects and divides us. With wit, insight, and tenderness, Big Familia explores the complexities of desire, devotion, and the mysteries of the heart.

              Rad Families: A Celebration
               

              Rad Families: A Celebration (PDF ebook)

              Edited by Moniz, Tomas; Foreword by Gore, Ariel

              Rad Families: A Celebration honors the messy, the painful, the playful, the beautiful, the myriad ways we create families. This is not an anthology of experts, or how-to articles on perfect parenting; it often doesn't even try to provide answers. Instead, the writers strive to be... honest and vulnerable in sharing their stories and experiences, their failures and their regrets. Gathering parents and writers from diverse communities, it explores the process of getting pregnant from trans birth to adoption, grapples with issues of racism and police brutality, probes raising feminists and feminist parenting. It plumbs the depths of empty nesting and letting go. Some contributors are recognizable authors and activists but most are everyday parents working and loving and trying to build a better world one diaper change at a time. It's a book that reminds us all that we are not alone, that community can help us get through the difficulties, can, in fact, make us better people.

              As Rad Dad editor Tomas Moniz says in issue #19's first essay, Parenting has taught me a lot about dealing with things I'd rather not deal with. This is the Rad Dad heavy topics issue; its pages are concerned with talking to your kids about topics you might shy away from--importa...nt issues like racism, sexism, death, domestic violence, police brutality, and environmental crisis. Rad Dad is, as always, about communication, about not shutting off when your kids need help making sense of the things happening around them. And sometimes that's the hardest part--when you yourself are fighting to make sense of a changing terrain. Says Tomas in the zine's intro, For my family, there was violence in our neighborhood as a number of young men were killed, friends of ours were assaulted in their homes, domestic violence happened in a family we were close to. Suddenly, it seemed I was just trying to keep up with things?let alone talk about them with my kids. But they were listening; they were witnesses to it all and witnesses to how we, the adults in their lives, reacted. The psychic landscape this issue navigates can be harrowing but Rad Dad retains the loving, constructive light of positivity and forward motion it has cultivated since issue 1. This is important reading--vital stuff for parents and nonparents alike. With contributions from China Martins, David Gilbert, Art Noose, Cyrus Armajani, and more.

              Each summer, The Banff Centre's Creative Non-Fiction and Cultural Journalism program takes in eight senior journalists and writers and charges them with a simple, if daunting task: Write about something you really care about. In this instalment of the Banff Centre Press's literar...y journalism series, participants push boundaries and arrive at some of their most passionate work. Taking Risks collects the work of twelve accomplished journalists on a range of subjects as diverse as their voices: the curious nature of the celebrity interview, writers borrowing material from other writers, the extinction of Aboriginal languages, a jazz musician 's troubled life. Offering unique insights, the writers take risks with style and substance, laying themselves on the line with an intimacy seldom seen in contemporary journalism.
