Fam­ily & friends

Girlfriend - - GF GOALS -

My older sis­ter told me she might be bi­sex­ual and came out to my par­ents. My dad isn’t pleased. How do I get her to open up to me be­cause I re­ally want to help?


Wow! It says a lot about you as a per­son that your sis­ter chose to dis­cuss her emerg­ing sex­u­al­ity with you. She has trusted you with a sig­nif­i­cant and highly per­sonal piece of in­for­ma­tion. It may take time for your fa­ther to ad­just but in the mean­time, there is noth­ing to stop you from be­ing a safe place for her to talk about bi­sex­u­al­ity. You may also be able to help your fa­ther by in­tro­duc­ing him to the or­gan­i­sa­tion PFLAG, for par­ents, fam­ily and friends who are drawn to­gether be­cause some­one they know or love is GLBTIQ. Its web­site is pfla­gaus­tralia.org.au
