Teens with LGBT parents contribute to new online magazine

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Rainbow Riot, a new online magazine for teens with LGBT parents, has launched at www.rainbowriot.org to serve the 9 million young people with LGBT parents in the United States.

Rainbow Riot features interviews with youth who have LGBT parents, artwork and video created by youth, and fiction written by professional authors.

The magazine is published by Rainbow Rumpus, a Minnesota-based nonprofit that has been publishing an award-winning online magazine for children and adults for over five years. The Riot site is linked to the Rumpus site so young readers can explore the content of both magazines.

'We launched Rainbow Riot in response to feedback from the hundreds of youth who read the online magazine,' said Laura Matanah, Rainbow Rumpus' executive director. 'Teens wanted their own site, so we created a whole magazine just for older youth.' Response to the site has been tremendous. 'Ur issues r the best thing i do online,' wrote a 14-year-old reader. Another shared, 'I like being able to see my artwork on the site.'

April's issue of Rainbow Riot features an interview with Avery Klein-Cloud, who was raised by two moms and discusses the process of making a documentary about her life during a period when she was searching for her birth mother and going through a 'racial identity crisis.' It also includes an interview with a young adult with a Gay father who created a video project to explore what it means to 'come out' as the child of one or more LGBT parents.

'We're excited for the Rainbow Riot site to bring our teen fiction to a wider audience,' said Matanah. 'The site as a whole will help us achieve our vision of a world where kids and teens with LGBT parents are safe, welcomed, and powerful.'

Teens and young adults are encouraged to submit photos, artwork, writing, and videos to Rainbow Riot. Contributions can be emailed to yourwork@rainbowrumpus.org.
