Daring Adventures: Helping Gender-Diverse Kids and Their Families Thrive

April 13 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT


Rev. Cornwell of Dumbarton United Methodist Church, author of “Daring Adventures: Helping Gender-Diverse Kids and Their Families Thrive” will appear with Dr. Matt Salmon, author of “Pride & Prejudice: Healing Division in the Modern Family” to discuss their books at Busboys & Poets, at 450 K Street, NW, Washington, DC on April 13th at 5 p.m.

Rev. Cornwell writes that “parents should not have to choose between their child and their faith. They do not have to reject their child or the children of others because their faith tradition has taught them that being non-conforming in one’s gender identity is not natural or ‘God’s design.’ Rev. Cornwell shows that no one need give up their faith in order to love and protect their child. She insists that accepting children of all gender identities is not only compatible with faith but essential for all faith communities of all religions and denominations.”

Salmon wrote his book to describe a family’s evolution from intolerance of others’ differences to embracing diversity in all its forms. The book describes his personal story growing up as a queer, neurodiverse kid in a conservative, intolerant religious community, and his experiences as an adult psychiatrist who has treated thousands of LGBTQ individuals with similar stories.
