Show Notes

Over the years we’ve heard LGBTQ people say that they didn’t know what life might look like for them as an adult. Many haven’t had LGBTQ role models that provide examples of a potential future, and a lot of fear that parents of LGBTQ children experience comes from the unknown as well. We thought it might be helpful for parents to get to know some of the amazing members of the LGBTQ community, just a few at a time, so that they can provide a realistic view of what life could look like for our children. Today, Jen joins guests Brandon Connolly, Mikayla Connolly, and Melissa-Malcolm King in the second episode of World of Possibility

Special Guests: 

Mikayla Connolly (she/her) is a Licensed Mastered Social Worker and advocate for the LGBTQ community.

Brandon Connolly (he/him) is a community activist and LGBTQ+ advocate in Southern Idaho. He’s passionate about educating others on LGBTQ+ issues and is the President of Southern Idaho Pride.

Melissa-Malcolm King (she/they) is an author, educator, and community leader.  In 2023, Melissa-Malcolm became the first woman and person of color elected to be President of Affirmation: LGBTQ Mormons, Families, and Friends.
