Supporting Parents of LGBT folk in all ways
Our faith has been significantly affected by the disclosure by our child that they were transgender. We struggled to come to terms with what this has meant. It has been a journey with many tears, sadness and slowly moving towards happiness.
Many years of ingrained 'understanding', built from stereotypical education' resulted in a gradual rebuilding of what LGBT actually means and a move towards what it feels like to come out as either LGBT. Our journey is nothing compared to those who are LGBT but we need to walk alongside our child because we love them totally. This is not a separation but a time of rebuilding that relationship so that we can grow closer and love them more deeply.
