Hello!

My Kid Is Gay is a digital resource started by Everyone Is Gay in 2013 that works to bring advice, stories, essays, and resources to the parents, families, and educators of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA) people. We are the first resource of our kind, and we also authored This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids to help get families answers to the many questions they might have when their kid (or nephew or sibling or other loved one) comes out to them!

My Kid Is Gay relies on funding from incredible supporters like yourself so that we can ensure that parents, families, and educators are able to find and access our resources! While we have a dedicated team of volunteers that help to create ongoing and ever-helpful content, it takes dollars and cents to ensure that our work is reaching those who need it most.

In the past, your support has allowed us to do paid campaigns on Facebook to increase our reach to folks who could benefit directly from our work — we’ve also been able to create Coming Out with Care, our free e-care package for parents of newly-out LGBTQIA kids, buy LGBTQ books to review on our site (and support LGBTQ authors in the process), and execute outreach and collaborative initiatives with other LGBTQ organizations around the world.

Now, we’ve set our first fundraising goal! When we reach our $500 goal, we will be able to create another e-care package focused specifically on transgender and non-binary identities! Funding will go toward the design, curation, and creation of the package, and also supports administrative elements that help us to organize and distribute on an ongoing basis!

Our work already reaches hundreds of thousands of young people and their families each and every month, and we are excited to continue to expand those efforts!

Thank you for your support!

Goals
$404 of $500 per month
When we reach this $500/month goal, we will create another (free!) e-care package focused on trans and non-binary identities, aimed at educating parents around gender, pronouns, transitioning, and how to best support their trans or non-binary kid!
