"When an individual is protesting society's refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him.”

MESSAGE TO PARENTS

If you are a parent struggling to understand and accept your child’s burgeoning sexual identity we hope this website will bring you some peace. For countless centuries LGBT people have been starting charitable foundations; serving in the military with distinction; discovering technological breakthroughs; creating magnificent art and sculpture; penning renowned literature and music; winning Olympic Gold Medals; and helping to shape World Diplomacy - the very best in human acheivement!  Your child is the latest in a long line of extraordinarily gifted people who have contributed in countless ways to the world we share. It is our sincere wish that our work to bring about a long overdue appreciation for all that LGBT people have done will give you hope that a better future for your child is just over the horizon.
