033 - In this episode, Heather interviews author and speaker, Britt East. While Britt's book, "A Gay Man's Guide to Life," is written for gay men by a gay man - it is an engaging, informative read that really sheds light on understanding gay men for those of us who are raising one! Heather and Britt discuss societal homophobia, sustainable gay friendships, hook-up apps, and so much more! Britt offers meaningful advice for those of us who love and/or are raising LGBTQ kids: "When you ask 'What can I do?' ask instead, 'Who can I be?'" In one of the most powerful segments, Heather and Britt discussed the importance of modeling our humanity, "...find a path to set down your trauma and heal so they can witness that healing in you, and thereby heal part of themselves..." To gain a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ experience, Britt recommends brushing up on your LGBTQ history.
