Santa's Husband

A book portraying a gay, black Santa in a relationship with a white Santa will be released this fall, the author announced on Tuesday.

Santa’s Husband will show a black Santa and his white partner. They both live in the North Pole; Santa’s spouse often fills in for him in mall appearances, which is why many believe Santa is white.

The book, Santa’s Husband, goes on sale Oct. 10 and tells the story of a black Santa Claus and his white husband who both live in the North Pole. Santa’s spouse frequently fills in for his husband at malls, according to a description of the book Harper Design provided to TIME.

Daniel Kibblesmith, who is a staff writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and co-author of How to Win at Everything, penned the parody children’s book after tweeting in December that he would only tell his future child Santa was black. “If they see a white one, we’ll say ‘That’s his husband,’” Kibblesmith wrote.
