Coming October 2016 – A Fairy Tale Every Child Should Hear

April 16, 2016

 

Promised Land, written by Adam Reynolds and Chaz Harris is about building a more inclusive world for all kids. “Like with all media, I think there have been some amazing strides” in terms of LGBT visibility, Reynolds said. “But there is still a lot of work left to be done.”

 

“Our hope is that our book can help in some small way towards building a better representation for [LGBT people] in the future.”

 

Promised Land” isn’t just great for kids — it provides a great opportunity for parents to discuss LGBT issues with their children, according to Harris:

“So much of what we see through the media and our parents when we are children forms our opinions and attitudes towards others and, more importantly, our attitudes towards ourselves. There are so few stories available for parents to safely and easily discuss with their kids that the world is full of all kinds of relationships and to encourage the acceptance of that.”
