Abstract
Au début des années 2000, Anne Cadoret montrait que les gays et les lesbiennes étaient "des parents comme les autres" qui reprenaient des manières de construire la filiation déjà adoptées par les autres parents. Toutefois, ces familles homoparentales sortaient d'un modèle de parenté dans lequel la filiation, l'alliance, la sexualité et la procréation se conjuguaient. Aujourd'hui, dans cette nouvelle édition, elle poursuit sa réflexion d'ethnologue en s'intéressant à deux questions brûlantes : l'anonymat des géniteurs lors d'un don de gamètes ou d'embryons et le recours à une mère porteuse. Ces questions peuvent se poser pour tout parent, quel que soit le cadre familial.

Abstract
Raising My Rainbow is Lori Duron's frank, heartfelt, and brutally funny account of her and her family's adventures of distress and happiness raising a gender-creative son. Whereas her older son, Chase, is a Lego-loving, sports-playing boy's boy, her younger son, C.J., would much rather twirl around in a pink sparkly tutu, with a Disney Princess in each hand while singing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi."
C.J. is gender variant or gender nonconforming, whichever you prefer. Whatever the term, Lori has a boy who likes girl stuff - really likes girl stuff. He floats on the gender-variation spectrum from super-macho-masculine on the left all the way to super-girly-feminine on the right. He's not all pink and not all blue. He's a muddled mess or a rainbow creation. Lori and her family choose to see the rainbow.

Abstract
Bullying in schools has garnered significant attention recently, but little has been said about the bullying of homosexuals and transexual students in Canadian high schools. This book fills that gap by exploring the experiences of youth who identify or are identified as "queer." Based on interviews with recent high school graduates in British Columbia, these researchers provide stories of physical, verbal, and emotional harassment in this group and offer insights into the negative outcomes that result from the experience of being bullied. On the other hand, however, these young people were not helpless victims: many learned to rely on resistance, inner strength, and true friends. In the last chapter, the authors make recommendations for handling homophobic and transphobic bullying in high schools and supporting students who experience this form of harassment.
