Questions and Answers for Parents and Family Members of Gay and Lesbian Youth

All children and teenagers need to feel good about themselves. All people are valuable and deserve to be treated with respect. But it can be difficult for gay and lesbian youth to feel good about themselves when many people around them treat them badly or believe that lesbians and gays have something “wrong” with them. Many gay and lesbian youth feel the need to hide who they really are because of fear their family will not be accepting.

This booklet is dedicated to parents and family members who are dealing with their child’s coming out process, or preparing for the process.
