Sixth grader Chloe B. ’29 wrote and published her own book titled, The LGBTQ+ Handbook: How to Spot Rainbows. The book chronicles Chloe’s personal coming out experience and shares her insights with readers who are interested in learning about LGBTQ+ issues.
Structured as a practical guide for peers exploring their identity and their family members, the book highlights the importance of providing support and validation to LGBTQ+ youth. Addressing the difficulties LGBTQ+ youth may encounter at home and school, How to Spot Rainbows emphasizes the integral role supportive adults play—teachers, counselors, parents, other family members, and mentors.
Recently, Chloe and her family appeared on Good Morning America to discuss her book. To watch the full interview, click here. Congratulations, Chloe!
