  • For the first time in human history, a nation has embraced same-sex marriage after the Netherlands passed a law which legalized it, and “gay” activists predicted other European countries will soon follow suit. In April, the mayor of Amsterdam united four homosexual couples as the ground-breaking law went into effect. “You are writing history,” Mayor Job Cohen told the eight homosexual participants.

  • “This is the first civil marriage to be celebrated between two women and two men. That is unique in the world.” The Dutch ceremony was the result of a 15-year crusade, according to an AP story. “I’m proud to be Dutch,” said one of the homosexual men who got married. “This makes it all real.” Media reports said only seven Christian protesters stood outside city hall, holding signs that simply said, “Come, let us return to the Lord.”

  • Belgium followed suit during Jan. 2003.

  • Next came Ontario, Canada in June 2003.

  • By Aug. 2004, SSM had become available in three Canadian provinces (British Columbia, Ontario, & Quebec) & in one territory (Yukon).

  • Lawsuits underway in Manitoba & Nova Scotia.

  • If, as expected, courts in the latter provinces approve SSM, then over 80% of Canadian same-sex couples will be able to marry in their own province.

  • Normal

    • How do you know if you are gay? Many young people go through an anxious stage during which they wonder, “Am I gay?” It is normal to feel this way as your sexual identity is taking shape. Maybe you feel attracted to someone of the same gender or you have had some same-sex activity. This is normal.

Gay, Lesbian, & Bisexual Teens: Facts for Teens & Their Parents

  • Sexual orientation develops as you grow and experience new things. It may take time to figure it all out. Do not worry if you are not sure. If over time you find you feel romantic attractions to members of the same sex, and these feelings continue to grow stronger as you get older, you probably are gay or bisexual. It is not a bad thing,it is just the way you are.

  • Coming Out

    • In the long run it feels better if you do not keep these important feelings a secret… keeping your identity a secret can be a burden…choose a good time & place to tell your family. If this information comes out during a family conflict or crisis, it may be harder for your parents to accept it. Remember, you have had time to accept your identity. Give your friends & family time, too.

  • Coming Out

    • Often family & friends will be relieved that you have helped them to understand you better. Try your pediatrician, parents, a trusted teacher, or a counselor. Members of the gay, lesbian, & bisexual community, or gay & lesbian youth groups, also can be helpful. They can be a real source of support & a place to find healthy role models.

  • A Message to Parents

    • When your teenager is gay, lesbian, or bisexual…Take a little time to come to grips with your child’s sexual orientation. You may need to readjust your dreams for your child’s future. You may have to deal with your own negative stereotypes of gay, lesbian, and bisexual people.

Gay, Lesbian, & Bisexual Teens: Facts for Teens & Their Parents

  • A Message to Parents

    • But you must not reject your teenager for his or her sexual orientation…Your teenager did not choose to be gay, lesbian, or bisexual. Accept her or him & be there to help with any problems that arise. Your pediatrician may be able to help you with this new challenge or suggest a referral for counseling.


No choice in the matter l.jpg
No Choice in the Matter Parents

  • The American Psychological Association & the American Academy of Pediatrics agree that homosexuality is not an illness or disorder, but a form of sexual expression.

  • No one knows what causes a person to be gay, bisexual, or straight. There probably are a number of factors. Some may be biological. Others may be psychological. The reasons can vary from one person to another. The fact is, you do not choose to be gay, bisexual, or straight.


Born that way l.jpg
BORN THAT WAY? Parents

  • Ann Landers (4-16-02)

    • “Your brother did not decide to become gay; he was born that way. I hope all the family…will accept the situation. His sexual orientation does not change the kind of person he is…I urge you to respect his privacy & allow him to determine how he wants to handle it. Meanwhile, please be as supportive as possible. He needs to know you love him no matter what.”
