Could this be a phase or perhaps something my lesbian daughter is doing to fit in with her friends?

PFLAG's Answer
While people may experiment for some time with their sexuality, someone who has reached the point of telling her parent that she is gay is not usually going through a phase. Nor is she trying to fit in with her friends. Generally she has given long and hard thought to understanding and acknowledging her sexual orientation. So if you're wondering, "Is she sure?" the answer will almost always be "yes." Telling a parent that you think you're gay involves overcoming too many negative stereotypes and taking far too much risk for anyone to take that step lightly or prematurely.
