All advice is welcome. I'll be sure to pass it on to her.
My sister has recently put me in touch with a very sweet young woman, who is about 20 years old. She is currently a junior in college and is dating her high school sweetheart, a girl. Her parents are Christian fundamentalists. She has been sent to an ex-gay thing already and has tried to be straight. She wants to come out to her parents now. She runs the risk, by doing so, of being taken out of college or being shipped off to bible college away from her girl. She is financially dependent on her family still. When she is home (she goes to school about two hours from home), her parents keep her away from her girl at all costs, as in only letting her see her when there is a huge group of people present. They're pretty heavily in control of her life, it seems. They know her girl is gay and think being gay is catching. What on earth should I tell this girl? Do you know of any resources that could help her?
