What is Raising Alek

By Sam Trego on Nov 06th, 2010

Parents everywhere seek the advice of their more experienced peers on subjects ranging from potty training to picking a pre-school, always hoping they are choosing good role models. But where do gay parents and want-to-be parents turn when they have questions about same sex parenting?

In San Diego, gay moms and dads can now count on the advice of Sam Trego, the new parenting columnist for the San Diego LGBT Weekly. In his Raising Alek….Straight Talk on Gay Parenting column, he hopes to provide education, support and connection for the gay parenting community, filling a void he know exists based on his own experience.

It is with that spirit that we present Raising Alek, the website. We hope to develop a community within a community here with this website in addition to the weekly column. A place where we can all come to get information, to open dialogue, get questions answered, have a few laughs, and perhaps meet each other and one day have a few “play dates” together.
