“Parents have an adjustment period themselves to go through whenever a child comes out of the closet to them… even though their childn’t actually die, their vision of how their child’s life was supposed to go just got eviscerated.” – Anish Tailor, Khush DC

National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) teamed up with local South Asian LGBTQ support organization Khush DC to host a panel which featured Asian-American parents (primarily from South Asia) giving their experience on dealing with the process of raising a child who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer.

This is an extended edit of a story published on VOA News (http://www.voanews.com/content/asian-…), with more insight as well as an interview with Anish Tailor of Khush DC.
