Today, October 19, is GLAAD Spirit Day when millions of Americans wear purple to speak out against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.
This week, a great book also hit shelves to help families who deal with these issues everyday. Coming Around: Parenting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trangender Kids wants parents to be able to accept, nurture and honor the child. For some, this comes easy. Others need this important book.
Author Anne Dohrenwend, Ph.D., addresses what to say and not to say, how to deal with social concerns, religious prejudice and bigotry, legal issues and homophobia.
Check out her book, and wear purple today with pride.
