    We’ve worked tirelessly over the past year on creating The Parents Project, on writing This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids, on maintaining daily advice and weekly videos here on Everyone Is Gay, on growing and expanding our Second Opinion panelists, and, of course, traveling to as many schools as possible to keep this much-needed conversation going.

    All of those things, and the many others we’d like to accomplish, are quite literally made possible with your support. So, if you’d like to help us out, here are some ways that are totally, completely awesome:

    • Donate: Almost every program we run is supported by funds donated to us by all of you. Giving one time is incredible — giving monthly, at any amount, helps us to plan for the future.

    • Like Us: Social Media numbers COUNT, you guys, and they help us source funding from larger organizations. So, please Like Us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, Check out our Instagram, Subscribe to our YouTube — and don’t forget about The Parents Project!

    • Pre-Order Our BookPre-ordering This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids not only enter you into a contest for sweet prizes… they also help us gather momentum that will fuel an incredible release of our book, and pretty magical things for the future.

    • Spread the Word: Share. Share. Share. The more people know about our work, the larger reach we have, the more resources we find, the better it all gets. If you are sharing about our book, include the tag #ThisIsOurBook, so we can find you!

    Happy Thursday.
    xoxo,

  • "My 13-year-old recently told me she’s bi. My husband and I are both totally cool with it, as is our 11-year-old son. The problem is my family. I’m worried that my dad and his wife are going to react badly. I’m close to my dad, but I would do anything to protect my kids from getting their feelings hurt. Any advice on how to talk to him about this? I just want to protect my little girl’s feelings, ideally without having to distance myself from my dad."
