Hope Talks | June 2021
“Advocating for LGBTQ+ Foster and Adoptive Parents”
One Hope United is proud to bring you Hope Talks, monthly conversations with leaders in the child and family welfare sector. By having these conversations, we hope to inspire actionable change and work together to improve outcomes for the children and families we serve.
In this month’s episode, Dr. Charles A. Montorio-Archer is joined by Brian Rosenberg, Founder of Gays With Kids, to discuss Advocating for LGBTQ+ Foster and Adoptive Parents.
About Brian Rosenberg
Brian Rosenberg has more than 25 years of sales and marketing experience, but his real passion has been the creation of Gays With Kids, the one-stop destination for gay, bi and trans dads and dads-to-be. Brian and his husband Ferd became first-time dads back in 2009, creating their family through adoption and surrogacy. At the time, there were few resources available to help queer men become dads, and even fewer for those who already were, so they launched GWK in March 2014. Together since 1993, the secret to this couple’s longevity is Ferd’s prowess in the kitchen and Brian‘s great appreciation for anything his husband cooks!
