The Asian & Pacific Islander LGBT People and Their Families, API Project of PFLAG NYC joins with other community organizations to host “Asian-American Parents Who Love Their Queer Kids,” a book reading and discussion on Wednesday, April 9. Author & activist Marsha Aizumi returns to NYC to join other Asian American parents who will share their thoughts about moving from fear, shame, and sadness to unconditionally loving their queer children. Aizumi, author of the recently published Two Spirits, One Heart will do a short book reading and talk about the lessons she has learned through her journey with her transgender son. A small group discussion will follow where individuals will have a chance to ask questions, share experiences, or just sit and listen to the thoughts and concerns of others. It is our hope that participants will walk away with greater understanding, increased awareness, and deeper commitment to being courageous, compassionate, and connected to those they love.
Marsha Aizumi, who resides near Los Angeles, is an educational consultant, author of the book, Two Spirits, One Heart, and a member of the PFLAG National Board. She believes her journey with her transgender son transformed her into a more compassionate, courageous, and loving mother. This journey opened her eyes and her heart to the amazing LGBT community which taught her the real meaning of unconditional love.
