Helping Families with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Children
Families love their children and want the best for them.
They want to protect their children and keep them from harm, and from
anyone who might hurt their child or adolescent.
When parents hold their newborn infant, few of them think their child
might be gay or transgender. In fact, many parents dream of special times
in their child’s future, especially of their wedding and when their
children become parents themselves – with heterosexual partners.
But many young people and adults are not heterosexual. Research shows
that between 2-7% of adults are lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB). Studies
also show that young people – both gay and heterosexual – first become
aware of being sexually attracted to
another person at around age 10.
As more information has become
available about homosexuality, it
has been easier for many children
and adolescents to realize that they
are gay at younger ages.
