During our event, Kristin will walk us through some terms and concepts developed in her book This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids, and through My Kid is Gay, a first-of-its-kind digital presence, inclusive of videos, advice, and resources, dedicated toward helping parents and allies understand Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual children and teenagers. After a short talk, Kristin will address questions from our community in a moderated discussion.
