I am a new member to this forum. Today my Son took me to lunch and disclosed to me that he identifies as a Pansexual. He told me that he has been thinking about this since he has been 14 years old. Needless to say, I was shocked because I have asked him questions before on his sexuality and he always told me that he was a heterosexual male.
I just want to make sure that I am being fully supportive of my Son and his disclosure about his sexuality. Quite frankly, he could have told me he was a "unicorn" and I would have supported him no matter what because he is my Son and I love him very much.
My worry is how his father and society will react towards him. My son is also multiracial and has had comments of a racist nature made towards him and now add upon this his preference in sexuality.
How can I make sure that my Son remains safe and that I give him all the support necessary? Any advice would be appreciated.
