Thank you for your question. Teachers and counselors are a vital part of a young person’s support system. Sometimes, as you point out, this runs counter to the parents’ role. In general, we tend to think of these as issues parents should be responsible for but, sadly, they sometimes drop the ball. In those cases, a supportive teacher could mean the difference between life and death for our LGBTQ children. 

Make your office/classroom a safe place - a safe haven - for the student. Sometimes they just need a supportive adult to listen to them. 

Gather resource for  yourself, the student, and their parents. PFLAG is the best place to start. This page has very helpful booklets that can be downloaded for free. (I will create a separate post with more details about PFLAG resources).

GLSEN has a whole section dedicated to helping educators like you. Check out their Educator Resources. GLSEN can also give you and your students information about starting (or strengthening) a GSA. 

I hope this helps.
