"Every person has an inherent dignity because he or she is created in God's image. A deep respect for the total person leads the Church to hold and teach that sexuality is a gift from God. Being created a male or female person is an essential part of the divine plan, for it is their sexuality—a mysterious blend of spirit and body—that allows human beings to share in God's own creative love and life."

"When we hold our baby in the nursery for the first time, no one tells us that our baby might be gay. By the time we know who our children are, we may have hurt them in many ways.
No one teaches us how to help and protect our gay or transgender children. We may think we can help by trying to change them - but we need to love them for who they are." - Erica, mother of a 14-year-old transgender youth
