Beginning today, Everyone is Gay and My Kid Is Gay co-founders Dannielle Owens-Reid and Kristin Russo will be visiting 21 cities across the US & Canada to talk about our book, This Is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids, and to dialogue and provide much-needed resources with families & communities! At the events, Dannielle and Kristin will engage with local communities, share inspiring stories from the book and foster conversations about LGBTQ youth issues, parenting, and diverse representations of family.
Canadian author Vivek Shraya will join Dannielle and Kristin to read from her book, God Loves Hair, a compilation of short stories following a tender, intellectual, and curious child as he navigates complex realms of sexuality, gender, racial politics, religion, and belonging. The Trevor Project will also be partnering with the tour to provide resources to families that need them in select cities!
