Maude White's incredibly detailed and fragile paper cut works
Dear Lovely Humans,
In case you missed it, we have written a Q&A advice book for parents whose kids have recently come out them. It’s called This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids, and it’s available for pre-order through September 9th, when it will be a real, live book on the shelves of stores. (eeee!)
Today, we’d like to introduce you to our book’s hashtag!
We chose the hashtag #ThisIsOurBook, because we believe that this book truly belongs to all of us. We think that all parents, even those who don’t have out, LGBTQ children, should be given the tools to create accepting, welcoming environments for their kids. We think young people have the power to tell their parents that these resources exist, and shape a new conversation, or one that mends things that have been broken along the way. We think that this book should belong to more than just ‘parents of gay kids’… it should belong to you and your family, whomever they might be.
We’d love if you’d send us pictures of yourself telling us what “Family” means to you, and use our hashtag so we can find your words and pictures and share them far & wide. You can also use our hashtag to ask us questions about the book!
We love you all like whoa.
