"How Should I Respond if My Child or Grandchild or Friend or Co-Worker Comes Out to Me?"

Conversation with Parents of Children Coming Out - LGBTQ

 

As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. As Rotarians, the Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do is our moral code for personal and business relationships. And, we know the test can be applied to almost any aspect of life.

Your District 6270 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Task force is pleased to present "How Should I Respond if My Child or Grandchild or Friend or Co-Worker Comes Out to Me?" Conversation with Parents of Children Coming Out - LGBTQ

You likely know someone who identifies as gay, lesbian, bi-, transgender, or queer....though you may not know. In May 7-10, 2009, USA Today/Gallup poll, Americans were asked their views on a number of issues relating to gays and lesbians. Overall, a majority of Americans (58%) say they have a friend, relative, or coworker who is gay or lesbian -- basically unchanged since Gallup first asked this question in 2003. Especially as a parent or a grandparent, you may not know how to start an open communication to know and understand. You may be unsure how to understand if it currently goes against your present beliefs and/or values.  Hear from some parents who have been in that place...that space. Bring your questions for an interactive session!
