Rainbow Rumpus is the world’s only online literary magazine for kids and teens with LGBT parents. As their mission states, Rainbow Rumpus provides a safe, fun, and empowering place for children and youth with LGBT parents to create and enjoy art, break through isolation, build community, and take action to make the world a better place.
