"My dad and dad are gay. They love me just as much as my friends' moms and dads love them. I'm happy to be in a gay family."

So reads a caption in Being Gay Is Okay, the latest children's novel from St. Louis publisher Really Big Coloring Books, a company that is no stranger to controversy.

Wayne Bell, founder of Really Big Coloring Books, tells Daily RFT that Being Gay Is Okay is one of the greatest titles his company has ever produced and came in response to public demand for such a book.

"We looked at what people were searching for on our website," says Bell of the coloring book that was two years in the making. "In researching the book we referenced and spoke to dozens of organizations that advocate on behalf of the LGBT community. The result is an upbeat and positive way to teach kids what to do if they're gay."

The coloring book includes trading cards of famous gays and lesbians (Anderson Cooper, Jodie Foster, Barney Frank and more), a gay marriage certificate and a sample coming-out letter. It also addresses head on those who denounce homosexuality as immoral, even reserving a full-page to the Rev. Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church.

I have reviewed the Being Gay Is Okay book.....it references over 20 different Gay Advocate and LGBT Organizations; the US Government LGBT orgs. and the book was edited by a provost at one of the major st. louis universities;

The Book is SIMPLY FABULOUS our teachers will use it next week.

Maybe you should read the book BEFORE you try and disparage others; I bet you made bad grades in school.

Just know you are listening to and know how to value a real opinion!

Be careful everyone, this coloring book is brought to you by the folks who publish lots of stuff for the Tea Party and coloring books about the "truth" behind 9/11.  Just know who your buying from.

Such a coloring book is brain washing the child. I thought the humanists would avoid such parenting. coloring books are suppose to be fun, not educational brain washing

@tonykeywest 99% of pedophiles are straight males. Gay men are attracted to men not children.
