Written in an accessible Q&A format, here, finally, is the go-to resource for parents hoping to understand and communicate with their gay child. Through their LGBTQ-oriented site, the authors are uniquely experienced to answer parents' many questions and share insight and guidance on both emotional and practical topics. Filled with real-life experiences from gay kids and parents, this is the book gay kids want their parents to read. Writers Dannielle Owens-Reid and Kristin Russo have been dialoguing with LGBTQ youth and families and friends for three years through their award-winning website, Everyone Is Gay (Winner of the 2012 Bloggie Award for Best LGBT Blog). They have also conducted an ongoing US-wide tour of college and high school campuses, as well as speaking engagements at places like SXSW, to increase awareness of LGBTQ issues. As of autumn 2013, they have begun building a Parents Project section of their site filled with resources and advice aimed specifically at parents.
