  • Practice responding to questions that children and families may have about gender identity and gender expression.
  • Learn about children’s books and other resources to support learning and dialogue.

Workshop facilitator:

  • Laurin Mayeno

  • Laurin Mayeno is a consultant, educator, and first-time children’s book author. Her son Danny, who loved dressing up as a princess, helped her see the importance of supporting young people who aren’t limited by gender boxes. She has worked with agencies, schools, and community groups to create supportive environments for gender-expansive and LGBTQ children, youth and their families. She founded Out Proud Families to build this support and fill a gap in resources for mixed-race families and families of color.
