    I'm So Proud And I Love My Gay Son...

    Came Out On Facebook!

    Yep, the first I knew was I was asleep on the couch and my 18 year old daughter woke me holding her laptop, saying: "have you seen this?". She was showing me my 14 year old son's latest Facebook status, it said: "haters gonna hate, but I'm gay". I was stunned, as he had hidden it...

    I've Adapted

    When I began tyo suspect my son was gay - when he was using the internet for cybersex - I was nervous and apprehensive. I didn't know how I could cope. But I told my son that he didn't have to hide and that whatever he tried or didn't try, I would be there for him. Now, almost a...
