Parent Encouragement Program (PEP) is a nonprofit, educational organization that provides classes both in-person and online to parents and all who care for children, toddlers through teens. Join them on March 15, 2022, for a FREE webinar: Critical Topics in Parenting: Exploring Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity.

An increasing number of parents are seeking guidance on how to support their LGBTQ+ children, particularly through the process of exploring and affirming their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

It can be a time of uncertainty and strong emotions for everyone, especially young people and their families. Finding sources of guidance and connecting with the right professionals when needed becomes a top priority.

Join PEP for a discussion with Washington DC-based Rainbow Families and a PEP Parent Educator to gain insight and hear personal stories from the perspectives of parents of LGTBQ+ children. Learn about resources for supporting children as they explore, question, and affirm their identity. More topics to be discussed, include:

  • Why the coming-out process is so important and what to say and do to be a strong foundation for your child.
  • How parents can serve as an ally for their child at school, with family & friends, doctors, sports, activities, and the broader community.
  • Supporting your child’s emerging sense of self, appearance, name, or new pronouns.
