Young Asian LGBTQs Have a Harder Time Coming Out to Parents Than Non-Asian LGBTQs, Trevor Project Says
A new report from The Trevor Project reveals that Asian/Pacific Islander (API) LGBTQ youth (13-24) struggle to admit their sexual orientation and gender identity to their parents.
Within Asian culture leaning to its more traditional side, hiding one’s sexual orientation or gender identity isn’t uncommon. An abundance of factors can play into why a less progressive family may not be open or is resistant to the mere idea of being gay, bi, trans, asexual, and the like.
