“There’s something I need to tell you…I’m gay.” These are hard words to hear from a beloved family member. But as hard as they are to hear, they are also hard for the same-sex-attracted person to utter. No matter the relationship–parent, child, grandparent, spouse, sibling, or other, that admission will likely mark a change in the way you and your loved one understand each other. These can be difficult waters to navigate, but our guest knows the rough waters firsthand and offers answers to the questions you need answered.
