A GROUP meeting for people in Somerset whose children have come out as gay will take place on Saturday (January 5).

Ricochet offers advice to parents about prejudices their children may face and the chance to speak to others about the issue.

Founder Colette Hill said: “Other parents are the best people to talk to for those who have concerns or questions.

“Our hope is that they will come to see being gay as just another version of normal.”

The meeting takes place in Dorchester – for venue and details email ricochet.enquiry@gmail.com or call 07803-309781.
