As a PFLAG member and the mother of a gay son, I know it's not easy for young people to come out to their parents. Most kids worry how their parents will react and parents often have a difficult time absorbing what they've just learned about their child. Many parents don't know how to tell family and friends. They worry about their child's safety. And some can't reconcile their child's sexuality with the teachings of their religious institution.

I decided to make this video to give the kids and their parents some tools to help them navigate this new world they have just entered. I want them to know that PFLAG is here for them and that it does get better!
