Description

Rainbow Parenting is an indispensable stepping stone for adults who want to raise and teach kids in a queer and gender-affirming way, but might not know how. Lindz Amer, the creator of Queer Kid Stuff, an award-winning LGBTQ+ educational webseries for children and families, is an expert guide, leading readers through practical applications, important LGBTQ+ history, key lessons in intersectionality, pronouns, social justice, and more. Divided by sections that address kids' individual ages—from infancy to kindergarten—this joyful and approachable book shares a bit of hope and starts with the understanding that anyone can spread queer joy.

By giving parents and their kids a vocabulary to express themselves, Rainbow Parenting ultimately aims to create more empathetic adults—and spreads a message of radical acceptance in a world where it's sometimes dangerous to just be yourself.

"An incredibly thoughtful and comprehensive guide focused on awareness and action. Throughout the book, Lindz balances what we need to know and what we can do as caregivers." ―Britt Hawthorne, author of Raising Antiracist Children: A Practical Parenting Guide

“Rainbow Parenting is infused with love on every page. No matter where folks are at on understanding the queerness spectrum and LGBTQ+ worlds, this profoundly accessible guidebook will meet all with kindness, humour, and care. Lindz Amer’s nuanced understanding (both lived and researched) about the worlds of (queer) children will open up many joy-filled pathways for adults to concretely support and affirm the kiddos in their life more, engendering safety, justice, and thriving for everyone!”
―carla joy bergman, editor of Trust Kids and co-author of Joyful Militancy
