Hargreaves, who works with the LGBTQ community, is talking about the controversial practice known as conversion therapy. It's a widely discredited approach of trying to counsel someone who is gay into being straight, either through talk therapy, medication or a combination of the two.

So I just found out there is a kiddo in my kids school, (Darrin). He is transitioning. He is in grade 8, and last year was (Darlene). The kids are being pretty mean to him, so I’m wondering what I can do (he helps with (name of their child who has a disability) a lot), how I can support him. Would Let Them Eat Gayke be appropriate for a 8th grader if he has fb?
