Help! my kid just came out

Many Christian parents or guardians whose kid comes out need support and guidance. (Maybe you did too when your kid came out? 😉)

Thankfully, loving LGBTQ+ allies from around the world answered the call and have shared their own stories about acceptance, education, and compassion. 

They’re showing the world how being a Christian and loving your LGBTQ+ kid go hand in hand.

What is this project about?

Help, my kid just came out!’ is connecting Christian parents or guardians whose kids have come out to folks from around the world. 

These LGBTQ+ allies are helping answer the whirlwind of questions that many families have. And, at the same time, they’re giving hope and inspiration to so many of us who may be struggling with our own journeys. 

What does it mean to be LGBTQ+? Will they be safe? Is it a sin? Did they choose this? Is it my fault? What about all the plans we had for them? How can we protect them from harm?

By sharing their experience, these Christian parents are helping others get the answers and compassion they need.

  • Christian, of any denomination or group.
