    I have a family member who is questioning their sexuality.

    I suggested a therapist.

    But, I wondered if there were services in the LBGT community to help. When I googled for groups around my area, the focus was on e.g. marriage rights.

    While I am 100% accepting and supportive, this will be a long struggle for my family member.

    Maybe a support group where they can ask questions?

    Mdjunction.com and supportgroups.com

    these are online groups for different purposes and it is free.

    Is there a Unitarian Universalist church in your area? Most are "welcoming" congregations and many have large LGBT populations. They will probably be able to lead your family member to resources that can help.

    Thank you, both, for the ideas.
    Band, I found a church in a nearby town that sounds like the one you described.
