Many people have the desire to be allies to the LGBTQIA community. Often these people are teachers, doctors, friends, and family, anyone really. However, a lack of base knowledge of the community can be an impeding factor for these allies. For any in-depth conversation to take place, common vocabulary must be established.
This set of courses is an introduction to the LGBTQ+ community for a parent wishing to be supportive. This bundle addresses foundation level language, issues of microaggressions, the gender and sexuality spectrums, and so much more. By completing this course, you will be competent and confident when talking with your child, or peer about the LGBTQ+ community, and will ensure your ability to support. This creates common language, and that promotes healthy discussion and healthy discussion leads to stronger relationships.
If you are the parent or loved one of an LGBTQ+ youth, this information is vital to your ability to support them from their first step out of the closet, to every step along The Proud Path.
Nathaniel has been an actor, a singer, a teacher, an educational administrator, and even a drag queen. He founded The Proud Path to fill the gap in knowledge between a child in need of support and a parent lacking the tools.
"Nathaniel strikes the perfect balance between empathy and expertise, with his guidance demonstrating both genuine kindness and a fundamental knowledge about issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community. Having seen Nathaniel work with students, many of whom are questioning their gender identities, going through the coming out process, or exploring their sexualities, I’ve seen firsthand his ability to make a difference and have an inspiring effect on those around him."
Private School Administrator, Fusion Academy
"Nathaniel's effervescent compassion and heart is clear in everything he does. When applied to his Life Work, helping advance LGBT awareness, rights, and community, it is nothing short of miraculous and moving. I have learned and grown personally and professionally through knowing Nathaniel."

What we spend our time doing is what we truly honor as important.
Whatever it is that we prioritize to fill our time is something we want to do. Actions speak so much louder than words. Choosing to spend time, just 30 minutes or so, to better understand why this matters speaks volumes about the kind of family member, parent, friend, or teacher you are. There's no strings attached, just a half hour of some of the exercises I've developed in my time as a lecturer and thought leader on LGBTQ youth in the home and in the school system.
I hope you'll prove that this is very important to yourself and to others by choosing to spend some time on it today.
Thank you already for taking the time to even be here!
