One of the organisations publications in 1990 was the video 'Parents Talking' featuring an introduction by Sir Ian McKellen. The video is a support resource exploring the thoughts of parents of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual people, the video was first broadcast and available free of charge via the internet from 1997. Other free resources since the early 1970s include booklets titled ' A Guide for Families and Friends' and deals with the many issues that in some cases may arise when a person makes the disclosure of sexuality. The second is 'How Do I Tell My Parents' and this discusses the many issues that often worry young people about the disclosure of sexuality. The booklets, both by Rose Robertson aim to assist all parties in looking at the different aspects of the disclosure of sexuality.

Famous quotes containing the words support and/or resources:

    An ordinary man will work every day for a year at shoveling dirt to support his body, or a family of bodies; but he is an extraordinary man who will work a whole day in a year for the support of his soul. Even the priests, men of God, so called, for the most part confess that they work for the support of the body.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    But, with whatever exception, it is still true that tradition characterizes the preaching of this country; that it comes out of the memory, and not out of the soul; that it aims at what is usual, and not at what is necessary and eternal; that thus historical Christianity destroys the power of preaching, by withdrawing it from the exploration of the moral nature of man; where the sublime is, where are the resources of astonishment and power.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
