Inspiring Mums Of LGBTQ+ Children
Dear Straight People,
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we asked our followers on Instagram (@DearStraightPeopleIG) what was the most touching thing their mum has done for them.
Here are 16 of the most moving responses!
Standing Up For Them
When she planned on hitting the priest with his bible for telling her that I need to be rehabilitated (for) being gay.
My lil bro posted something slightly homophobic, my mum called him to take it down.
She called my dad out for saying ‘f*ggot’ and said it offends her too.
Accepting Their Partner
After coming out to her last year, she agreed to host and meet my girlfriend from Norway for the first time this year. I was so touched because it showed how (her) efforts to accept me despite being extremely disapproving when I first told her.
Welcoming my partner to the family home.
Accepting my partner into her life after I come out from the closet.
After 2 years of fighting about being lesbian, she invited my girlfriend for dinner.
When my mum said “Bring her during CNY, it’s ok! Dad will accept her. Remember to bring her hor.’
My mom asked my boyfriend to stay over!
My mum told me she will love my lover no matter what (that) person’s gender or sexuality is.
Accepting Their Child
My mom might not know but she buys masculine clothes for me and I am really grateful.
My mom said I love you unconditionally the day I came out.
Buy me ‘mens’ shorts when I came out as trans to show me she supports me.
Joined a parents of queer kids advocacy group to better understand queer issues.
Acknowledging and accepting me without making a big deal. Just a hug & ‘Be happy‘.

My mum knows what is pinkdot, wore pink to work on that day, and also took photos with me with pinkdot mascot plushies at home after her long hours of work
