My Love Letter to You

My Love Letter to You

On this Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t think of anyone better to write a love letter to than you, the moms and dads of LGBTQ kids. Every day, I’m inspired by your stories, your commitment, your love. You stand up for your kids. Of course you do – you’ve loved them since...

Decline in acceptance of LGBTQ peers

Decline in acceptance of LGBTQ peers

I just read this article which cites a poll conducted by the LGBT media-advocacy group GLAAD and conducted by The Harris Poll found that fewer non-LGBT adults reported being comfortable with their LGBT peers than in previous years. I find this rather frightening. Is...

Therapy for a transgender boy

Therapy for a transgender boy

I read this story about a 17 year old boy whose grandparents are seeking full custody and the ability to make medical decisions for him. They support him and want him to start on hormonal therapy. The boy’s parents say he is not  transgender and want Christian-based...

It’s Time To Outlaw Conversion Therapy

It’s Time To Outlaw Conversion Therapy

States are starting to ban conversion therapy, the harmful practice of attempting to convert someone who is gay to straight. It doesn’t work. And it is dangerous. I’m reminded of the day when it was “wrong” to be left handed. Left handed children were forced to learn...

Adoption

Adoption

Embracing Change

Embracing Change

Embracing change has never been one of my strong points. Can’t everything just stay the same? Well, not really. Change is a part of life. I wouldn’t go back to where I was in my 20 years ago, 30 years ago or more. I wouldn’t want to be 25 again. Why? Because the...

Happy 2018!

Happy 2018!

Happy New Year! Happy 2018 (a bit early)! I can’t believe the new year is right around the corner! I hope you’re having a great holiday season, so far. I’m well aware that the holidays are a struggle for too many LGBTQ kids and parents of LGBTQ kids. Some kids are...

Best Christmas Gifts for LGBT Teens

Best Christmas Gifts for LGBT Teens

The holidays provide us the perfect opportunity to show our LGBT teens that we support and love them. We know this is important year round, but far too often the most joyous time of year can trigger feelings of depression and isolation in people. During this season,...

He wants to make homosexuality illegal!

He wants to make homosexuality illegal!

I try not to be too political except as it pertains to LGBTQ rights. The election in Alabama to complete Jeff Sessions’ term as Senator has me scared and angry. Judge Roy Moore has no respect for the constitution and the law of this land. He has an agenda based solely...
