Welcome to Families Matter,

a place where people with gay or transgender family members can come together anonymously and share experiences

"Dad, I'm Gay..."

For Wendy's father Jim, hearing these words was the beginning of a long, challenging and ultimately rewarding journey.

Like many parents, Jim initially reacted with surprise, worry, sadness, disbelief, and self-blame. He felt he had nowhere to turn for support.

Jim’s love for his daughter and dedication to maintaining their strong relationship inspired Wendy to create Families Matter. Their hope is that no family member ever has to feel alone on this journey again.
