Guest Writer

Laurin Mayeno is a children’s book author and equity and justice consultant, whose work is inspired by her experiences growing up mixed race and parenting a nonbinary queer child. She wrote "One of a Kind Like Me/Único como yo," a bilingual (Spanish/English) story about a little boy who wants to dress up as a princess. Laurin is also active in Somos Familia, an intergenerational organization she co-founded that supports families with LGBTQ+ children in the Latinx community.
