How To Have The Sex Talk With LGBT Children

Experts tell HuffPost Live how to discuss the birds and the bees with kids outside the binary.

Talking to a child about sex is tricky -- and often stressful -- for parents who want to strike a balance between being open, honest and truthful without veering into territory that could be inappropriate for a young age. But the conversation becomes even more complex with lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) children, who often need an extended discussion about gender and sexuality that may be unfamiliar to heterosexual parents who haven't experienced those issues firsthand. 

So what's the best way to handle such an important parenting moment? HuffPost Live's Nancy Redd talked with a panel of parents and sex experts on Monday to answer that very question. Watch part of the discussion above, and click here for the full HuffPost Live conversation about sex-positive parenting.
