Hello! I hope you're doing well! I was wondering if you could tell me the appropriate response to give a friend or family member who tells me that they are a part of the LGBT community?
As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I get hyped whenever I learn that someone is part of the community, so I’m not really sure how else to react. I’d just listen to them– react the way you would react if someone told you that they were a realtor. Act like it’s nbd, because it’s not.
Unless coming out to you is a big deal for them, then I’d let them know that it’s okay, and that nothing has changed– they’re still the same great person that they were before they told you.
