Parenting has always been hard, They have to rely on what had been taught, what the pastor said, what their teachers told told them, even what doctors proclaimed when they were growing up.
When their child tells them “Mom, I'm gay” it is like telling them you are a stranger! Of course they are traumatized! Thankfully now there is a wonderful support group of like minded parents. People who have gone through the same shock and can comfort and guide them to a new and much fuller relationship with their LGBT child.
This is thanks to an elementary school teacher, Jeanne Manford back in April 1972, got a phone call from the hospital saying that her son Morty, had been beaten while distributing pro-gay flyers.
Her reaction made history! Instead of kicking the child out of the house, (an all too often occurrence), Mrs Manford fired off an angry letter of protest to the New York Post! She said she was the mother of a gay protester and complained of police inaction!
Jeanne Manford did not stop there. She gave interviews and became an activist in her own way. She marched with her son in the New York Pride March of 1972, carrying a hand-lettered sign saying "Parents of Gays Unite in Support for Our Children".
