New resource for parents! IYG parents' group
IYG is hosting a parents' group on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 (at IYG). Parents from Indy PFLAG will facilitate the group discussions and provide information. This group is open to all parents of youth questioning their sexual orientation whether they attend IYG programs and activities or not.
Your acceptance will make or break your child's future.
THE most important factor in the healthy development of your LGBTQ child…is YOU! Youth coming from a rejecting home are up to 8 times more likely to choose risky behaviors as an adult.

Did you realize that many times parents of LGBTQ children have to come out too? What does this mean for you? This is about your child, but it does put you, as a parent, in a position of coming out yourself. Do you talk to your family about what's happening? Is your pastor going to understand? Will you put a photo of your child and their partner on your desk at work? There are many situations that you are going to find yourself in where you are going to have to decide whether to come out or not!
