Talking with kids about LGBTQ families

on Tuesday, 13 January 2015. Posted in Events

An LGBTQ family resource guide

Talking with kids about LGBTQ families

Ahead of our Building Families and Making Books event on Saturday (Saturday January 17 10am - 12 at the Pride Center), here is a preliminary resource list for LGBTQ families who are looking for guidance on how to talk with their children about egg and sperm donation, surrogacy, adoption, etc.

This is by no means a comprehensive list, but it is a thorough launching place for parents who are looking for either basic or more in-depth references to begin discussing your family with your children. These include age-appropriate language to consider, comprehensive reading list suggestions, and LGBTQ-specific references to help kick-start these complex discussions.

 

 

Resources for talking to your children about LGBTQ assisted reproduction:

Some basic references:

- parents.com: Supportive advice from a lesbian mom.

- parentsviaeggdonation.org: Discussion about egg donation, and includes feedback from kids, as well. Straight-family oriented but still includes helpful ideas.

- dcnetwork.org: A little generic but includes some age-specific language with sections for heterosexual and LGBTQ couples.

- thespermbankofca.org: Introduction of talking to kids and includes a good list of recommended reading. Geared toward an LGBT audience.

- creatingafamily.org: There are a lot of resources here for both adoption and AR families, but it is spread around the website. They do have specific information for LGBT families in both AR and adoption.

 

More in-depth references:

- thespermbankofca.org: Thorough list of recommended reading, with many books on family diversity and talking to children about donors, etc. I highly recommend checking out this page!

- varta.org: Lots of info and several helpful PDFs linked to on the page. (From Victoria, Australia so the legal advice is moot in the US.)

- colage.org: Some helpful information plus a guide for parents and kids ($35)

- path2parenthood.org: Talking to children about egg and sperm donation, geared toward LGBTQ families.

- familyequality.org: Helpful suggestions with age-appropriate language

Letter: PCVT Staff Member John Chagnon Moves On to Fenway Institute

on Friday, 09 January 2015.

Letter: PCVT Staff Member John Chagnon Moves On to Fenway Institute


Dear PCVT Family,

With much excitement, but also sadness, I will be moving on from my role as a GLAM Coordinator at the Pride Center of Vermont to accept a new opportunity at Fenway Institute in Boston. I’m thrilled to continue my work in the field of HIV/AIDS Prevention & Services, and hope that I will continue to be surrounded by the rockstars that are fighting to put an end to this terrible virus that has affected so many beautiful people around us. 

Over the past year, I’ve been truly blessed to be involved with the GLAM guys. By creating fun, social events around the Champlain Valley (and beyond), we’ve been successfully building community and life-long friendships while spreading information on safer sex to gay/bi/trans men that are most affected by HIV transmission in Vermont, providing free, anonymous HIV/HCV testing and free safer sex supplies within PCVT and across the state, and connecting rural Vermonters to important resources to provide safety and well-being. A majority of new HIV infections in Vermont are found within the community of men who have sex with men, and GLAM is one of the few remaining prevention programs in the state that specifically fights to eliminate this disproportionate epidemic amongst MSM. 

We make HIV prevention sexy… wouldn’t you want to take condoms from a group of handsome guys dancing in their underwear at a bar? Or how about hosting a party at your house where Mike Bensel and I offer HIV testing in a bedroom while you and your boys eat delicious food we’ve provided and goof off in the living room? And don’t make me grab the silicone body orifice in my office and demonstrate how Insertable Condoms can be used anally. Yes, we’ve done all of that, but most of what we’ve done is things like hiking, river tubing, or playing some volleyball while making solid bonds with each other, all of which can build healthy, sober relationships and also prevent HIV transmission! 

It’s not all about prevention, though. When someone finds out they are HIV positive, feelings of hopelessness, or worse, can creep over them. Mike and I have been fortunate to be able to show newly diagnosed people that the option to stay healthy and have a long, fruitful life is very real, as long as you access services and take care of yourself. Making the best decision for yourself can be overwhelming, and GLAM is here to help you get connected to the care you need.  

One of my favorite accomplishments this year involved helping Twin States Network set up LifePLUS, an HIV Social Support Group that provides a confidential, friendly environment where HIV positive Vermonters can gather twice a month and socialize, share stories and find support in one another. Living in rural Vermont can be isolating; adding in an HIV diagnosis can further deepen isolation and make it extremely difficult to stay away from depression, which then can make it difficult to stay healthy. Hearing the stories, lending a helping hand when I could, and seeing happiness on faces as participants realize they are not alone has made everything worthwhile. 

I’m so thankful for all of the experiences I’ve been through at PCVT and to have been a part of the team of LGBTQ superstars that work and volunteer here. I hope others will be inspired to become a part of the PCVT family and continue to help provide essential services to LGBTQ Vermonters for years to come! 

John Chagnon
Health and Wellness Coordinator 
Pride Center of Vermont

Fear, Phobia or Sexism?

on Tuesday, 16 December 2014.

Guest Post: Rene Dubois

Fear, Phobia or Sexism?

 

Like most gender non-conformists, I occasionally encounter inquiries from cis and trans* folks alike that trespass

on my personal space, most notably; Why do you dress in women’s clothes? Are you gay? When are you going to

transition? Do you suffer from a fetish based in Blanchard’s theory of autogynephilia? Do you realize that you

really don’t “pass” as a woman? 

 

Good questions, all of them, but no one’s business, unless I choose to share. Perhaps it is more appropriate to

inquire, “Why do you ask?” Fear, homophobia, transphobia, third-gender aversion? 

 

Julia Serano, noted author and activist (her book, Whipping Girl is required reading for the cast of Amazon Prime’s

“Transparent” series), suggests that these intrusive insults are the result of sexism on many levels. Oppositional

sexism is the belief that all humans can be neatly divided into two distinct groups, male and female. Traditional

sexism supports the hierarchy of male privilege; men viewed as strong and rational, women meek and emotional.

And finally, cis-sexism promotes the misconception that individuals whose gender identity aligns with their

biological sex are more “normal” and “natural”. 

 

I happen to agree with her. The incessant inquiry and “policing” by others as to my identity and motivation may

not be based in fear as much as buried underneath accepted and unconscious assumptions by the general public,

both cis and trans* alike. 

 

It seems to me that confronting sexism is a cause worth renewing for the Trans* and supporting queer

communities. Simply promoting an identity in opposition to cis-gendered individuals or attempting to secure the

queer middle ground in between, still doesn’t address this system of assumptions that are ingrained in our

thinking. 

 

Sexism hurts all of us, regardless of identity, orientation or expression. We need to admit that all of us are

perpetrators as well as recipients and, often times, the issue is confounded with the other “isms” of race, age and

ability. A “real time” awareness as it happens and acknowledgement that we all could do better is the place to

start. 

 

If there is interest, I would like to organize an online book study group that would delve deeper into sexism and

other important issues that preclude community development. I propose that we start with one or both of Julia’s

books, Whipping Girl or Excluded. To accommodate personal schedules, actual group meetings would be limited

to once per month at the Pride Center of Vermont, with weekly posted “assignments” in between. Comments,

thoughts and questions would be posted in a Facebook group, giving everyone the opportunity to review

responses at their leisure. Rather than a real-time Google Chat, this format would allow participants to reflect and

compose their responses. 

 

No prerequisite courses required, nor any exams to pass. Rather, the yearlong seminar would culminate in a small

group discussion with Julia, herself, during her visit to Vermont in September to deliver the keynote address at the

second annual Gender Pride event at Contois Auditorium in Burlington during Pride Week 2015. 

 

Let me know if you are interested in joining the group, which will start in January, by sending me an email at

Rene@pridecentervt.org or sending a friend request via Facebook to Gender Pride Book Study Group. In the

meantime, check out Julia’s website, juliaserano.com, to find out where to purchase her books, either hardcover

or digital. And hang in there, we are all gonna make it through the holidays and our spirits will be renewed by the

lengthening days and increasing sunshine as spring approaches. Maybe a good book is what we need to help.
