    The following graduate paper concentrates on homosexuals who have revealed their sexual orientation to their parents and on parents who have faced their child's homosexual orientation. The focus lays on the question how a homosexual experiences their own disclosure and how their parents are facing it. The theoretical part concentrates on the development of the sexual identity, its disclosure and influence on the parents – child relationship. The empirical part introduces the results of the focus group including homosexuals and the results of three interviews with the parents of homosexually oriented children. It can be concluded that the disclosure of the homosexual identity is not a stressful event but as a spontaneous one. The parents’ reactions varied; the majority asserts that they accept their child regardless of their sexual orientation.
