Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) Children

Five Things to Know If  You Think Your Child is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender... 

 

1.    You are not alone.  Over 16% of families have a member who is LGBT.

 

2.    Being LGBT is not a phase, choice, or illness.  It is simply a natural variation of the human condition, like being left-handed.

 

3.    What would it take to stop loving your own child?  Rejecting children for their sexual orientation or gender identity can have

many disastrous outcomes, including depression, substance abuse, school failure, running away, and even suicide.

 

4.    Parents of LGBT children need support too.  Resources are available at:
