Another question from the beautiful men at The Good Men Project.
Q: Allana, my father just told me he is gay. I don’t care, I love him for being honest with himself; but, my mother, she is devastated. She keeps blaming herself and says she doesn’t know how to live her life without my father. What can I do?
A: First, I want to acknowledge you for your capacity to be non-judgmental, to keep your heart open, to love your father, and praise him for being true to himself. Your mother, her whole identity is being shattered. I am positive a lot is going on within herself and the impact she may feel from her community, family, and friends.
