need advise re. possible gay daughter

My 14 year-old daughter just confessed about her being gay/ possible bi-sexual.  I assured her I love her the same way. I really need to talk to someone who knows more about this subject, I am concerned I might say something that will make her not trust me, or not talk to me openly.

Hello, I think its great that you assured her that you love her and there are some gay youth resources out there that help them http://www.glnh.org/talkline/index.html they also have resources for parents http://www.pflag.org/ through one of these web sites I am sure they can help you help her.  I would be supportive get some books continue to keep the communication open.  I hope this helps.

here are some more sites

I just wanted to thank you for your kind words and the links.  I continue to be very open with her, I just want to make sure that I am not offending her in any way.  For now she is very happy that I was not mad or angry when she told me.

Every good word counts, thank you! I must tell, first I was confused, but a did a lot of reading since Sunday, and I get more and more confortable about it. My daughter tells me more and more every day about how she feels, and I am happy that she chose to talk about her feelings.
