Tune in to this important presentation on What being Out Means in an LGBTQIA+ Interracial Adoptive Family, featuring Rainbow Families Board Member Beth Wheeler and Rainbow Families past-Board President Tony Hynes.
Inside Out LGBT Radio wants to hear from you. Join us live Tuesday, June 4th 2:00-3:00pm EST
Tony Hynes, author and interracial adoptee of same sex parents, hosts a show that will cover what it means to exist as an LGBTQIA+ Interracial adoptive household for parents, adult adoptees, and adopted children. This show will examine how coming out, as well as being out, is multifaceted in this type of family structure. Guests and adoption experts Beth Wheeler, a White adoptive parent of two African American boys, and Schai Schairer, a Haitian adoptee, will talk about how to make connections across difference, the importance of parenting for queer and trans openness, how microaggressions highlight the double and triple consciousness parents and adoptees need to possess in order to navigate through life, and the real and perceived dangers their families endure as members of marginalized communities. The guests will tell us what pride in their families means to them, what it might mean to adopted children from these backgrounds, and the increased importance of implementing a model of Tolerance, Acceptance, Inclusion, and Advocating (TAIA).
