Parents forcing their children out of the closet is a horrible situation to be in. If your child felt comfortable with you to tell you that they are gay, bi, lesbian or trans it’s not your business to tell anyone else unless they want you too. It should be something to talk about with your child to understand what they are going through and you should ask your child if they want to share that info with other members of the family. Respect your child’s privacy unless they do something legitimately wrong that breaks your trust. Being apart of the lgbt and being quiet about isn’t being dishonest nor a betrayal of anybody’s trust they probably scared to tell you cause they are afraid you won’t accept them. Let them come out when they’re ready.

*and I live in Michigan, one of 3 states that through “religious protection laws” or as I like to call them, “crusade to be a bigot laws” same sex couples can still be denied to adopt based solely on their sexual orientation if the adoption agency is religiously affiliated. (most adoption agencies in Michigan are religiously affiliated)
This is a victory to be proud of but the fight is not over!

The fourth image refers to the trafficking of organs on the black market, where most of the victims are children from poor countries; fifth refers to weapons free in the U.S.. And finally, the sixth image refers to obesity, blaming the big fast food companies. The new series produced by Cuban artist Erik Ravelo was titled as "The untouchables”, are photographs of children crucified for his supposed oppressors, each for a different reason and a clear message, seeks to reaffirm the right of children to be protected and report abuse suffered by them especially in countries such as Brazil, Syria, Thailand, United States and Japan"
