Is It Permissible to Disown an Actively Homosexual Family Member?

Question: Is it permissible to disown an actively homosexual family member?
Answer: Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,Dear questioner,

May Allah guide me, you, and all of our family members.

It is impermissible to cut family ties with any family member unless they are actively harming someone.

Asma the daughter of Abu Bakr asked the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) if she should keep ties with her mother who was at the time an idol worshipper, and he said that she should. (Bukhari) Idol worship is much, much worse than being in a physically homosexual relationship.

This tells us that one cannot disown someone just because they are engaged in gross sin. Rather, one can only avoid them, or cut off ties, if there is harm in being around them.
