As lonely as it may be to be an LGBTQ person, it can be to be a relative. Therefore we have Families and Friends, which is a support group for parents and relatives. Here there is room to ask questions, raise thoughts and discuss things that a relative does not want to or can bring up with other than those in the same situation.

We who have started the initiative in RFSL Uppsala have ourselves experienced how, in the absence of knowledge, it is difficult to find advice and support when you need it. The group is meant to be a meeting place for parents and close relatives where we can talk and get support as relatives of queer people. Since we are in the start-up phase, you can join and make a difference from the beginning.
