  • 324-03 FF - Families as Catalysts: Parental Advocacy of LGB Youth across Contexts
    By Alison Chrisler, Elizabeth Holman

Hostility in a community toward the lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) community can negatively affect LGB youth’s wellbeing. Parents, however, can act as catalysts, generating support for these youth and becoming advocates for their children. Using Bronfenbrenner’s ecological systems model, we examine how parents created more affirming spaces for their children at the micro-, meso-, exo-, and macro-system levels. Findings from this study emphasize the importance of looking at contextual factors that influence parents’ advocacy efforts; that for some parents, as they become more aware of hostility, they become more empowered to speak up in support of their LGB child.
