Join us for a conversation about the many ways we talk about sexual
orientation with our kids, how you can create a more inclusive and
welcoming environment for your child to learn both personally and about
the diversity of lived experience in their communities and their city.
Open to parents with kids of all ages, this workshop aims to offer
guidance and facilitate peer learning on how to communicate about sexual
orientation in ways that match your own valaues and support your child
regardless of their experience.
- Understanding sexual orientation (definitions, terms)
- When and how to talk to your children
- Responding to questions and comments inside the family and from the various communities you and your child are part of

for Seven Stories Press. The first, What Makes a Baby, was released in May 2013 and will be available for purchase at the session.
