Here are some of our past questions:

There's no PFLAG chapter within a 90 minute range and my mom seems to be having a really hard time with me being a lesbian. She hasn't told anyone besides her aunt, who had a gay brother and has a gay grandson, and I think it's wearing on her. How can I get her to be more comfortable when she has no support system?

  • I am a 22-year-old lesbian and I've been dating the same woman for the past two years. I came out to my parents about 18 months ago, and that wasn't good. However, they're trying. But more and more I feel like my mom only tried temporarily, that she thought "I'd get over it." I spent a few years dating males when I was younger, and I think that has led her to believe that I'm not really gay. I used to be so close to my mom, but lately I don't even feel part of my family. She would be very hurt if I accused her of this, but it is the emotion she conveys to me. I am writing this not really for advice on how to approach my mom, but because I just need to tell someone. As all LGBTQ people know, there are few feelings worse than feeling like you're no longer part of your family just because you happened to fall in love with someone of the same sex.

  • My husband of 7 years has been showing signs of being a submissive? bisexual. He has told me of his fantasies of being with a gentle man, this has become a constant with him to where he is even looking in single online locations for a man to explore with. I am confused as to what to do or how I should feel. I don't know if he looks at me as a lover or just his spouse, because he will not give me an answer. I do know that we do not make love as a man/woman married couple would, it is always coupled with the fantasy of him being with a man. Help, I need a man to complete me, and not sure as what to do...

  • I'm a 17 yrs old girl who happens not to know what I really want. In my school my friends and I do all these stupid gay games, the last thing that I know is that I'm very attracted to them. I like boys 'cause I date alot but at the same time I happen to look at girls that pass by. What should I do?

  • I am a female who has a close gay male friend that I love dearly. In the course of our friendship he has not spoken much about his sexuality but recently he met a guy that he is interested in and is sharing his feelings about the potentially developing relationship. I am exremely happy for him, he's been alone for a long time and deserves all the happiness he can get. I should mention that he has admitted that he is inexperienced with relationships... When he asks me for advice in what he should do to further the relationship etc. etc.I have been saying the same things I would say to any friend who asks for relationship advice, but it occurred to me that perhaps there is something specific or some special way I should handle his questions. It would be terrible if my advice HURTS his chances! Can you tell me if there anything specific to same sex relationships and romance that I may benefit from knowing or any specific areas that might be a concern for him and his possible boyfriend that he might ask me about? Also, if you can recommend any good books or have other any suggestions on how I can be the BEST friend and most supportive friend to him that I can be all the time but especially now, I would be appreciative! Thanks!

  • I'm a gay and my parents told me that like hell you're gona be like that!! And once they found out that I had a girlfriend they told me I could no longer see or talk to her anymore or there will be serious consequences! We really care about each other and want to be together regardless of what my parents say.So we're still together and I want my parents to just except me for who I am! Should I tell my parents or should I wait until I move out of the house?
