Default Family rejection of lesbian, gay and bisexual children linked to poor health in early

For the first time, researchers have established a clear link between family rejection of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) adolescents and negative health outcomes in early adulthood. The findings will be published in the January issue of Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, in a peer-reviewed article entitled Family Rejection as a Predictor of Negative Health Outcomes in White and Latino Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Young Adults.

I wouldn't be surprised. It's a sad day when people can reject and disown their own flesh and blood instead of supporting them.

I agree Juno. I support my daughter all the way. I don't however have a relationship with my father and one of my brothers and neither of them are gay! Sorry, I guess the world has many shades of grey.....

Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.

Well, put another way. There are legitimate reasons why family members become estranged. It's sad but a fact of life. That someone is gay should not be one of them.

stress affects health negatively, it's no surprise, I could imagine how stressful it could be to have your own family reject you. If I have children and one turns out gay or bi I'll support them no matter what
