Lori Duron

Raising My Rainbow
Adventures in Raising A Gender Creative Child

Author and advocate Lori Duron gives a frank, heartfelt and humorous account of her family’s adventures of (initial) distress and (eventual) happiness raising a gender creative son. Duron will explain the differences between sex, gender, sexuality and other related concepts in an easy-to-understand way. She’ll share how her family navigated the often challenging but never dull privilege of raising a gender creative, LGBTQ son and offer tips for supporting kids like hers to beat the statistics and launch them healthily into adulthood.

Lori Duron is the author of the award-winning book Raising My Rainbow: Adventures in Raising a Fabulous, Gender Creative Son, the first parenting memoir to chronicle the journey of raising a gender nonconforming child, and is based on her popular blog RaisingMyRainbow.com which has 4 million readers in 199 countries. Raising My Rainbow was awarded the American Library Association‘s 2014 Stonewall Award in the non-fiction category; was one of Publisher’s Weekly’s Best Books of 2013; and a PEOPLE Magazine Good Read. Duron’s blog has been named one of BlogHer’s Voices of the Year four times; one of Ignite Social Media’s “100 Women Bloggers You Should be Reading;” one of Circle of Moms “Top 25 SoCal Moms;” and one of Parents Magazine’s blogs that are “Most Likely To Change The World.” Duron was awarded PFLAG’s 2015 Flag Bearer Award.
