Book Review: Bi The Way A Journey Over The Rainbow @northwood_sarah #loveislove #LGBTQ #bisexual #trans #pronouns #parenting #comingout

A lovely heartfelt book explaining the author’s experiences with thoughts from her pregnancy, the early years to the difficulties of the teen years, culminating in her child’s coming out.

I particularly loved the poems: Rainbow Bridges, Perfectly Different and the illustrations the author had created within Bi The Way.

It was touching to learn how Sarah Northwood’s child chose to come out to her and how this felt.

The author gives advice how to support your young person and explains the terms: bisexuality, non-binary, use of pronouns, genderfluid, transgender, gender dysphoria and the ways to make children feel welcome and accepted regarded of their gender, or sexuality.

The main aim of the book is to promote understanding, tolerance and to lessen psychological damage by non-acceptance from parents/friends/community. A worthy aim, which I am happy to support too.

There is a useful resources section at the back with links followed by notable LGBT dates to celebrate.

A lovely book full of warmth, love and understanding.

My rating: 5 stars
