Santa Claus is portrayed as a black gay man married to a white man in a parody book due out in October.

On Tuesday, the publishing house of Harper Design confirmed to Time magazine that it is producing a book titled, “Santa’s Husband” that is geared for people of all ages coming out October 10, 2017. (RELATED: Dem Lobbyists Cancel Christmas Because Trump Won)

In the book, the traditional children’s story is turned upside down. Mrs. Claus is replaced by a man who lives with Santa at the North Pole and fills in for him at the malls.

The new story comes from one of the writers of the “Late Night with Stephen Colbert” show, Daniel Kibblesmith, who tweeted last December that he would only tell his future child about the existence of a black Santa. On Tuesday, Kibblesmith announced that the idea was being turned into a book due out before Christmas later this year.

“Me & @JenAshleyWright have decided our future child will only know about Black Santa. If they see a white one we’ll say ‘That’s his husband.'”

 

The artwork provided in a follow-up tweet for the book showed a cartoon drawing of a black Santa with his face leaning up against a white male, in similar attire, looking into each other’s eyes.
