Santa Claus will be gay black man in a new children’s book

NEW: Santa's Husband by Daniel Kibblesmith

SANTA CLAUS will be getting a new look this Christmas season, as book publisher Harper's Designs announced plans to release a parody children's book called 'Santa's Husband'.

The book will re-casts Kris Kringle as a black man in an interracial, same-sex relationship, and will follow Santa’s life in the North Pole, but in this version, he’ll have a white husband who fills in for him at shopping malls around the world.

The book is slated to be released in October, and is written by comedy writer Daniel Kibblesmith. He claims he got the idea for 'Santa's Husband' after the Mall of America faced backlash for having a black Santa.

According to The Huffington Post Kibblesmith would like readers to have “warm Christmas-y feelings and a good night’s sleep,” noting that he hopes the book will ultimately become a favorite “for couples and new families who are looking to begin their own kinds of holiday traditions.”
