When we think of family, the images that come to mind are inevitably shaped by historical, personal, cultural, religious and social factors. The desire to belong to someone or some place; to have others see you as they might see themselves; to know without hesitation or doubt that your idea of family—be it queer, heterosexual, black, Asian, religious or pagan—is just as valid as the next person’s, no matter the outward differences or lifestyle choices. This paper draws on the work of Toni Morrison and Alison Bechdel to explore how each author represents, and reflects back to us, the notion of family.
