‘What We Gained’ By Alejandro DeVillan

Alex is trans and bi, 37 year old ‘Mod’. Mod is modified parent, or mix of mom and dad, as AD likes to say. AD is Alex’s 11 year old queerspawn who can’t wait to get to camp. Alex and AD are going to Queer family camp, along with Alex’s partner Daniel. Late night arrivals, surprise trains, and hecklers can’t stop this group from having a good time! How many hills and loops can one weekend’s emotional rollercoaster hold for this family and their queer community?
