// Help Us With Our Lost Letters Project//

We’ve been seeing a lot of letters lately from parents to their gay/possibly gay/not-even-born-yet children and we had an idea.  Since not everyone is so lucky to come out to such supportive parents, would you be interested in writing a letter/tweet/note to those who didn’t get that kind of support? 

So many of us didn’t come out to hugs, or preemptive notes in the kitchen, but we have each other. 

You can write the letter you’d always wished you’d gotten or the letter you’d wished you’d written but missed your chance.


Here’s how you can share your letter with us:


1) You can tweet your lost letter to us at @huffpostgay.  Be sure to use the hashtag #lostletters

2) You can email your letter to us at gayvoices@huffingtonpost.com

If you want to include an image, PLEASE DO! We love pictures :-)
