Asian Parents Unconditional Love for their LGBT Children

Asian Parents Unconditional Love for their LGBT Children:

This
unconditional love story between Asian parents and their LGBT children
is about creating loving families and stronger communities.

There
are an estimated 325,000 Asian Pacific Islander (API) adults in the
United States that identify as LGBT.  Unfortunately, in the API
community, young people often see coming out as an act of shaming and
dishonoring their parents and their ancestors, but staying in the closet
takes a greater toll, causing isolation, depression, and even suicide.
Our call to action? Let’s encourage API parents to offer their LGBTQ
child a lifeline, support their coming out, and keep the family strong
and unified.  For more information and resources: http://ift.tt/2nchuNl  (API Rainbow Parents of PFLAG NYC)

NextDayBetter x AARP, a storytelling campaign capturing Asian American
Pacific Islander love stories on unconditional love. Love is sacrifice.
Love is family. Love is love. How you do love unconditionally? Tell us
your love story in the comment below, using hashtag: #AAPILoveUnconditionally
