On May 27, 2021 "LGBT Youth Organization Deystvie" organized a presentation of the new book "The Courage to be a Parent" in Plovdiv. Despite an attempt to thwart the event by unsavory individuals, the book launch went well, including representatives of parents featured in the book.
"The Courage to Be a Parent is a collection of personal stories from parents who share their own and deeply personal encounters with discovering their children's identities. 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 stories of parents of LGBTI children and to ask questions about when and how it is appropriate for a person from the community to come out to their family, colleagues and friends.
Our team would like to express its gratitude to the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bulgaria, whose financial support made "The Courage to Be a Parent" possible.
