PFLAG is featured in the newest edition of Ladies Home Journal, which has an audience of 4.1 million. The article focuses on LGBT bullying and the importance of family acceptance and parent advocacy. In light of the recent LGBT youth that we've lost to suicide, we are thrilled to be getting this message out to such a large number of people.
The tagline to the article really says it all: It's (LGBT suicide) a shocking trend. Isn't it time for all of us to encourage compassion and respect, no matter how we feel about homosexuality?
We hope that this article will bring the issue of bullying to a new audience and will help facilitate conversations between parents and kids about the importance of treating others with respect. Once you have a chance to read the article, leave a comment below - we'd love to know what you think of it.
