LGBTQ 101 for Parents
Monday, November 4, 7pm @ the MI Library

Presented by Jo Langford
Father, therapist, sex educator, and author of The Pride Guide

Join Jo Langford for an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about parenting if your child is (or might be) queer. There are unique dynamics involved in raising a child who is Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans or some other shade of the spectrum. With honesty and humor, Jo provides information and a road map for looking at the world through a different lens and advocating for your family in ways you might never think you’d need to.  Come for encouragement and guidelines for best practices when parenting this population.  It DOES get better…but the how and the when of “It” starts with you.

For parents and adults.
