About Kristin Russo

Hello!

My name is Kristin Russo, and I have been working with LGBTQ communities for the past ten years in various ways — I am the co-founder of LGBTQ organizations Everyone Is Gay and My Kid Is Gay, author of This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids, and have run an All Ages Pride Party in NYC for the past seven years. This year All Ages Pride also expanded out to Atlanta for the very first time!

I also worked as host and producer of the PBS Digital Series “First Person” and was co-director of Autostraddle’s A-Camp for several years. I have my masters degree in Gender Studies, and I have been out as a queer woman for two decades.

This Patreon page exists to support various elements of my work with LGBTQ communities — first and foremost in allowing me to donate Skype sessions to middle and high school GSAs. If I am able to hit my goal of $500/month in this space, I will be able to offer one free session each month on an ongoing basis to schools who reach out with the request. Having already opened up a form for submissions, I know that there is no shortage of schools who’d like to engage in dialogue. As I work toward that goal, the funds here will continue to go toward those conversations!

So many schools are doing brilliant work and do not have the funding to bring speakers in, and the visibility and impact that these conversations can (and do!) have is deeply important.

Past this work, I will be offering live-streams focused on various conversations: some for teachers and administrators, some for parents and family, and others for employers and those with questions about the workplace.

My work has evolved so much over the years, in response to the changing landscape and need for conversation — and all of it has been made possible by the support of the larger community.

Thank you for everything you’ve done thus far to help me reach LGBTQ young people and those who love and support them.
Goals
$249 of $500 per month
When we reach this $500/month goal, I will be able to donate one Skype session to a middle school or high school GSA each month!
