Grandparents are the source of unconditional love for their grandchildren. When a grandchild
comes to you to discuss matters of sexual orientation and gender identity, they are depending on
you to listen to them and not judge them. Join us for this educational webinar for grandparents
and those with younger loved ones who are coming out as LGBTQ+. We’ll learn how sexual
orientation differs from gender identity, tips for showing your support, and more.
