This link will take you to a video of my mother sharing her lucha as the mother of a queer child and her journey of coming out into wholeness and healing. The journey of coming out and living into wholeness is not an individual journey but is celebrated and wrestled with en conjunto (in community) with others–it is an ongoing path of discovery of embracing the true meaning of family (For All Moments I Love You).
(my apologies for the shaking and audio)
For resources and support for the loved ones of queer folk, the organizations below are good starting places…
- Family Equality Council
- COLAGE (people with a LGBTQ parent)
- PFLAG (parents and friends of lesbians and gays)
- Fortunate Families
- Family Acceptance Project
