Letters: A daughter’s search for love
Sir - We have two daughters and like all parents, we wish for them to have happy and contented lives. Although some people may choose to marry, one of our daughters does not have that choice as she is gay.
Our daughter knew at 12 years old that she was gay but, as the idea frightened her, she put it from her mind for a time.
At 16, trying to come to terms with, and to accept the fact that she was gay, she went out from her family and friends, alone, to find out who and what she was.
