S3: E40: Allyship Is For Everyone with Authors Kate Lum-Potvin and Dr. Frank Sileo

"Allyship is a way of loving and taking care of other people."
Today, Cyn and Isaac are joined by Kate Lum-Potvin (she/her) and Dr. Frank Sileo (he/his), co-authors of the new children's book, Pride and Joy: A Story About Becoming a LGBTQIA+ Ally. In this conversation, Kate and Dr. Sileo explain the reasons why they decided to write a book on allyship from the perspective of a young child, and their hopes for the impact it may have.

The story follows a young Joy who, after witnessing an act of homophobia targeted at her older brother Noah, is compelled to help in any way she can. The book introduces young readers to the concept of allyship gently, with resources for teachers and parents to help facilitate further learning and discussion.

Pride and Joy will be available on May 18, 2023 at major book retailers, published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
