Being LGBTQIA is messy. Hell, being human is messy. But no one prepares you as a mother of four to have two of two kids that are LGBTQIA. Yet what she never saw coming is her life calling to come out of her cocoon to support kids and families on the journey out of the closet. Heather Hester, proud mom, coach and podcaster joins this PRIDE season with a candid conversation and insights about raising two LGBTQIA children and the ups and downs of parenting.
Heather is a podcast host and coach for parents and allies of LGBTQIA+ adolescents and young adults. She believes the coming out process is beautiful. She works with her clients to let go of fear and the feelings of isolation so that they can reconnect with themselves and their child in a meaningful, grounded way. She is a writer, the mother of four (two of whom are LGBTQIA), and a student of life who believes in embracing the messiness, opening to education, strengthening through empowerment, and overcoming anything with love.
