In this article, Cris Mayo examines the relationship among anti-LGBTQ policies, gay marriage, and sexuality education.

We extend this research by examining generativity through the lenses of social marginality and ritual. Toward this end, we utilize in-depth interview and observational data about family rituals from 49…
