Rowan Jetté Knox

Rowan is a best-selling author and award-winning advocate for the 2SLGBTQ+ community. They became involved with United Way when their family received support from programs Around the Rainbow, and Camp Ten Oaks. They became involved in advocacy after they supported their middle child Arden, who came out as transgender and later non-binary, and their partner Zoe when she transitioned just under a year later. Their family’s story demonstrates resilience, support, and unconditional love. 

In 2017, Rowan’s family was profiled in our Path to Pride series. Arden says Rowan was supportive with an open mind and willingness to learn every step of the way. When Zoe came out shortly after Arden, Rowan had the research prepared, but had to navigate how to support a partner through their transition instead of a child.
