Lead With Love

What do I do if my child is gay?  Lead With Love is a 35-minute documentary created to help answer that question. Our goal is to provide comfort, information, and guidance for parents who have recently learned that their son or daughter is lesbian, gay, or bisexual. The film follows four families as they share their honest reactions to hearing that their child is gay, including the intense emotions, fears, and questions that it raised. Interviews with psychologists, teachers, and clergy provide factual answers to parents' most commonly asked questions, as well as concrete guidance to help parents keep their children healthy and safe during this challenging time.

The video to the right is a 2 minute and 38 second trailer of the 38 minute movie "Lead With Love".  In order to see the full feature you must fill out a survey.  You can watch the trailer to decide if you want to continue to the full feature movie.
