Family acceptance affects the physical health, mental health and well-being of LGBTQ youth and adults. Family acceptance prevents serious health risks including suicide, substance abuse, HIV and homelessness and it promotes well-being for LGBTQ youth and adults. Family rejection, often due to religious beliefs, results in the high rates of homelessness for LGBTQ youth. Studies indicate that 40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ. Therefore, equality programs must possess a comprehensive understanding of the impact of family acceptance and family rejection upon LGBTQ youth and adults.
