What Challenges Do LDS Children Face Who Have a Gay Parent? When children learn that a parent is gay or lesbian, a host of issues challenges and impacts their lives. Some of these include: thinking they can no longer be an eternal family; feeling the gay or lesbian parent can no longer be a role model; perceiving the parent as a sinner; and wondering if they might be gay themselves. When LDS children have to deal with these issues they often become depressed (even suicidal) or may become inactive in the Church. This panel will share their own experiences and concerns, making suggestions to eliminate ignorance and fear. There will be time for questions and answers.
