Heart breaking. Real. As a parent, I can’t fathom how any parent can throw their child away because of a sexual orientation. It cuts me to the core. Please reblog, share and get the word out. We have to help this youth find acceptance and happiness. We owe it to them, to try change the world for the better. #acceptance #tolerance #understanding

The Novel Approach

Ryan Berg Banner

Please join me in welcoming author and youth worker Ryan Berg to The Novel Approach today. Ryan’s book, No House to Call My Home: Love, Family, and Other Transgressions, brings to the fore the subject of youth homelessness and the percentage of those kids who identify as LGBTQ.

Ryan was kind enough to sit down and answer a few questions for me. I hope you’ll take a moment to read and comment.

And now, here’s Ryan.

DividersLisa: Hi, Ryan, welcome to The Novel Approach. I’m so glad to have you here with us today. Before we get into the heart of the interview, why don’t we begin by having you tell us a bit about yourself?

Ryan: Thanks for having me. I’m a creative nonfiction writer and youth worker based in Minneapolis.  I’ve been doing youth work since 2004 and have been writing my whole life.
