When you first find out your child or loved one is gay, lesbian or bisexual, you not only are shocked and or confused but you are worried for them.
You are worried that they will live a life of secrecy and that they wont have the same opportunity to do well in their working and social life.
This is not true for most homosexual people.
You may not realise that there are lots and lots of very successful homosexual people within your own community.
Some of these are famous gay people and others maybe doctors,lawyers, teachers, councillors, local business owners, judges, musicians, actors, writers, tradesmen, taylors, shop assistants etc, the list goes on.
These are all people holding good jobs, earning good money and helping the communities they live in. You just may not know they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.
Every person is different regardless of their sexual preference.
Please believe that your child or loved one will not be unsuccessful and unhappy just because they are homosexual.
I have listed just a few famous gay people for you to take note of. Some you may or may not already be aware of and some you may be shocked to know of.
Some are from a long time ago and some are from recent times.
