For Siblings

As a brother or sister of a gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender individual, you may be of particular importance to promote understanding and acceptance in your family.  Each generation has  its ideals, dreams, and hopes.  Being the sibling of a gay (GLBTQ+) person of the same generation, you may be more equipped to be accepting and understanding. However, if this came as a complete surprise to you, you might have questions that are foremost in your thoughts.

  • Why is my brother or sister gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (GLBTQ+)?
  • Why did I not know that my sibling is GLBTQ+?
  • How can I help my parents understand and accept my brother or sister?
