Education is often the key to understanding and acceptance. There are a lot of myths and lies about homosexuality and gender identity. And those myths and lies hurt! Often we absorb these myths almost without knowing it from television and movies, from books, from soundbites on the news, sometimes from our friends and family, and often from our own religious organizations. As we begin to deal with sexual orientation (our own or that of a family member or friend), it is important to get reliable, fact-based information.
So education begins with ourselves, and we are eager to learn. Knowing and loving our LGBTQ family members and friends helps us “unlearn” homophobia and strengthen our relationships with those who differ from us. Sharing our experiences with other families teaches us that we are not alone. We are eager to share what we’ve learned with others—out of pride in our LGBTQ loved ones, and in the hope of making the world a friendlier and safer place for them.
