S2E5: Raising LGBTQ+ Allies with Chris Tompkins Gays With Kids the Podcast

    • Parenting

Raising kids who are allies to the LGBTQ+ community may seem like second-nature to gay parents, but everyone has their blind spots. And what about our straight family and friends? Although they may be allies themselves, many may not be aware of how their words, actions, and even gifts can influence how the kids in their lives understand LGBTQ+ people.

This episode, GWK Executive Editor David Dodge talks to author, teacher, and speaker Chris Tompkins about his stocking-stuffer-perfect book "Raising LGBTQ+ Allies: A Parent's Guide To Changing The Messages From The Playground."
