Hi there!

I was raised in a very conservative environment, and questions about sex were often mediated by the church. Indeed, I remember one "fun" saturday morning in fifth grade when I was forced to attend a church seminar on puberty, purity, and "God's plan for my sexuality." Because much of my sexual education happened through a homophobic church and a heteronormative public school system, the advice given in these classes grew useless as I realized that I was gay.

My question is, how should I open up a dialog about queer sexuality with my future children, and does your program offer a way to do that? There's more to sex than just mommies and daddies making babies, but even many progressive frameworks don't take LGBT identities into account.

Do you think that this rather milquetoast statement will actually manifest in any positive change, or are you just deluding yourselves?
