We asked Pippa, as the mother of a gay son, if she had any advice to the questions and reactions families may naturally have when a child comes out. Hopefully it will help some people prepare for the questions their parents may ask, and answer some questions family and friends may have.
Okay, but I don’t think we’ll tell your father/family….
They are still the same person you/Dad/Aunt Maud has always known and loved. They love you just as much as they did yesterday, before they told you, can’t you do the same for them. There are loads of websites/charities that support and inform parents and families of LGBTQ people. Look at them together perhaps?
