"The greatest fear, is that my parents will not love me. How do I tell them, I'm gay, I have HIV, I may soon die? What do I tell them? I love them very much and I always have?"

"Do your parents love you now?"

"Yes"

"They will still love you. You are their child. They held you at birth. They sacrificed and showered you and your siblings with love. They raised you to be independent, loving, and caring adult. You deal well in all your other endeavors.
If anything, they will love you more and pray for your health and happiness. You have had to adapt and protect yourself from negativity. But you won't have to worry about that at home. Your parents will always love and support you."

I have discussions like this one all the time. And if one of my children came home and told me, "Dad, I'm gay", it wouldn't change my love for them.

Please think about this, for your children...

Because if your kid comes home and says they are gay and want to get married someday, what are you gonna tell them?
