On 22 June LGBT Deystvie organized a presentation of the new book - "The Courage to be a Parent" in Varna.
The book is a collection of personal stories of parents who share their own and deeply personal encounters with their children's identity disclosure. Through them, we in turn encounter the experience of what it is like to be a parent whose child is coming out as LGBTI.
During the event, participants had the opportunity to receive a copy of the book and hear the personal story of a parent of an LGBTI child. In the discussion that followed, the youth in attendance were able to get their questions answered about when and how it is appropriate for a person from the community to come out to their loved ones. The meeting proved to be extremely useful for them as none of them had had the opportunity to talk to a proud parent of an LGBTI person before.
Our team would like to express their gratitude to the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bulgaria, whose financial support made "The Courage to Be a Parent" possible.
