About

My Kid Is Gay is a first-of-its-kind digital presence, inclusive of videos, advice, and resources, dedicated exclusively toward helping parents understand their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual children. My Kid Is Gay sources voices from across the world to help answer the many questions that parents (and family members, and even teachers!) have about the LGBTQIA young people in their life, including advice from parents, youth, and experts on a variety of topics related to sexuality and gender identity.

Co-Founders Kristin Russo and Dannielle Owens-Reid are also the authors of This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids (Chronicle Books), which is a question & answer guide for parents whose kids have recently come out to them!
