As a family member of someone in the LGBTQ2S+ community, this can be new and scary territory for you. While you may want to love and support your family member the best you can, you may simply feel unequipped to do so.

The good news is that there are many resources available to parents and families of individuals in the LGBTQ2S+ community that can help you better understand and support your loved one(s).
