Many Hollywood, music and sports stars have spoken out over the years to share their love for their lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer children. Find out which celebrities have been supportive of their LGBTQ kids -- and the few who haven't -- starting with this actress, author and television host... On the Dec. 31, 2020, episode of her "Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best" podcast, Busy Philipps for the first time publicly discussed the sexual and gender identities of her eldest child with screenwriter husband Marc Silverstein, People magazine reported. "For those of you who are my friends listening at home, this is the first you're hearing that Birdie is gay and out," Busy shared, adding that Birdie, who was 12 at the time, "told us at 10 years old and we immediately… I mean obviously, I knew that Birdie knew." Busy later on the podcast said that when it comes to gender identity, Birdie -- who gave Mom permission to speak on the subject -- prefers to use the pronouns they/them.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
