Author Signing: Telaina Eriksen, UNCONDITIONAL: A GUIDE TO LOVING AND SUPPORTING YOUR LGBTQ CHILD

This book provides parents of a LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning) child with a framework for helping their LGBTQ child navigate through a world that isn’t always welcoming. Author Telaina Eriksen, a professor at Michigan State University and the mother of a gay daughter, explains what she and her husband have learned through experience, including how to:

• deal with gay children coming out
• confront bullying of gay children
• become an advocate for gay children
• and, build a support system in a gay family

Eriksen also covers the science on gender and sexuality and how to help a transgender child through the various stages of development. Throughout the book parents and kids who have been there, share their stories. She also directs gay family parents to various resources online to help them.
