Group Description

Adult Children of Straight-Gay Marriages (ACSGM) is a private support group formed specifically for and by adults and older teens whose parents had a straight-gay marriage or relationship. Many of us are dealing with a closeted or formerly closeted gay parent, which creates a myriad of issues for us that other people don't understand.

The aim of the group is to foster a supportive atmosphere of mutual understanding and healing. There are a number of support systems in place for both the straight and gay parents; however, there is a lack of support and resources designed specifically for their children. This group is composed entirely of adult children and older teenagers of straight-gay marriages or relationships who are here for mutual support. It is not run by therapists, but the group does have access to professionals in the field if needed.

This group is also different from support groups that work with children who come from a household where there are two gay parents. We come from marriages where there were lies, deception, and often emotional or physical abuse that impacted the family dynamics throughout our lifetime. Many of these issues remain with us and need to be resolved.
