We Do!: Achy Obejas: Like Every Other Kind of Family

To celebrate the release of We Do!: American Leaders Who Believe in Marriage Equality and the Supreme Court’s recent ruling against the Defense of Marriage Act,  Akashic Books invited some of its authors to share their thoughts on marriage. 

Achy Obejas (author of Ruins, editor of Havana Noir, and contributor to Chicago Noir) builds off a piece she wrote for the Chicago Sun-Times and asserts that same-sex marriages and families are “like every other kind of family.”
