About Us

EIG-Circle2-blueEveryone Is Gay works to improve the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA) youth using a three-pronged approach: providing honest advice to these youth while keeping them laughing; talking to students in an effort to create caring, compassionate school environments; and working with families & educators of LGBTQIA kids to help foster an ongoing dialogue and deeper understanding.

Founded in 2010, the organization grew rapidly and founders Kristin Russo & Dannielle Owens-Reid began touring school campuses in 2011. The pair then founded My Kid Is Gay, a first-of-its-kind digital presence for families of LGBTQIA youth, and co-authored This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids. Kristin now works as CEO & Editor-In-Chief alongside a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers!
