Whatever...Love is Love: Questioning the Labels We Give Ourselves
Tickets available now by clicking here.
Actress and activist Maria Bello made waves with her essay, “Coming Out as a Modern Family,” in the New York Times popular “Modern Love” column, in which she recalled telling her son that she had fallen in love with her best friend, a woman—and her relief at his easy and immediate acceptance with the phrase “Whatever Mom, love is love.” She made a compelling argument about the fluidity of partnerships, and how families today come in a myriad of designs.
In her first book, Bello broadens her insights as she examines the idea of partnership in every woman’s life, and her own. She explores how many different relationships—romantic, platonic, spiritual, familial, educational—helped define her life and encourages women to realize that the only labels we have are the ones we put on ourselves. According to Bello, the best and happiest partnerships are the ones that make your life better, even if they don’t fit the mold of “typical.”
