Over 15 years ago a video, 'Parents Talking' was produced on FFLAG's behalf. It features Manchester Parents Group members discussing their feelings when they discovered they have a lesbian or gay child. The introduction is by Sir Ian Mckellen, Gandalf from Lord of the Rings in case the face rings a bell :) You'll need to forgive the ancient fashion sense, after all it's 15 years ago, but the information is as relevant today as it has always been.
Manchester Parents Group now proudly presents the only on-line version, helping to get this video spread as far as possible.
