The Chosen Family was a Canadiancomic strip, written and drawn by cartoonist Noreen Stevens. The strip, which first appeared in 1988, was based on Stevens' own life, revolving around a lesbian couple named Weed and Kenneth-Marie. Minor characters included the couple's friends Puddin' Head (a stereotypical gay man) and Straight Chick, and their two children, a daughter named Rosebud and a son whose name was never given.
The strip appeared in many LGBT publications throughout North America, including Xtra! and the Washington Blade, and also in mainstream general interest publications such as Geist.
