The Names We Take was in Teen Vogue for 2020 Pride with some of the heaviest hitters in this years crew of LGBTQ+ authors. I am shocked and humbled to find my story there too.
In so many ways, TNWT changed my life. It created a pathway to conversations with my youngest child about identity, gender, and sexuality. I wrote TNWT and came out to many of my family and friends. I’ve had people reach out to talk about their own gender exploration and I hope it opened some hearts to the queer community.
Thank you Dan Clarendon and Teen Vogue for giving TNWT a moment in the spotlight!
