"This Is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids" (Encore presentation.)

Feb 13, 2015

(Please note: This show originally aired in October of last year.) Our guest is Kristin Russo, who -- along with her colleague, Danielle Owens-Reid -- communicates daily with LGBTQ youth and families at the award-winning website called Everyone Is Gay. Russo and Owens-Reid have a book out that stems directly from this website; it's called "This Is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids: A Question & Answer Guide to Everyday Life," and Russo talks with us about it. The book, as she explains, is meant to be an easy-to-read, go-to resource for parents hoping to understand and communicate with their gay child. It answers many questions -- both the common and not-so-familiar -- and shares useful insights on a range of emotional as well as practical topics. As was noted of this book at EllenTV.com: "Danielle Owens-Reid and Kristin Russo's question and answer book is the perfect guide for parents of gay and questioning children. They answer all the potential questions a parent might have, with a lot of love and patience."
