Adolescent Health Working Group created a new video series that highlights how nonprofits, public agencies, and individuals support the health and safety of young people.
We were recently joined by Marsha Aizumi. Marsha is an educator, national speaker, and advocate for the LGBTQI+ community. Marsha serves on the PFLAG National Board of Directors and is a co-founder of the first PFLAG chapter created specifically for Asian Pacific Islander families.
In this interview, we chat with Marsha Aizumi about her journey with her son Aiden, parenting and supporting LGBTQIA+ young people, working with other Asian Pacific Islander parents, faith, and advice for other parents and caregivers.
Marsha also reflects on how she went about writing her memoir about her family’s experience, ‘Two Spirits, One Heart.’
Marsha shared images of her and Aiden:
