Someone close to you confides that he is gay but he doesn’t want to tell his family nor let other
people know his sexual preference. What advice would you give to this person?
Your feelings are valid. You will never be obliged to tell anyone about who you really want to be.
You do not have to feel like you owe it to every important person in your life. And please, allow yourself
to feel disappointed and hurt for the people that will not accept you for who you want to be, because the
more you demand acceptance to those people, the harder it is to move past this. Coming out can be truly
challenging. Be proud of yourself for who you are as a person, whether you want to tell people, or want to
keep it to yourself. It does not make you vulnerable to decide not to come out, and it does not render you
any less of a person. I will always be here for you and support you. I am grateful for your existence. And I
promise to accompany you at the pride march whenever you feel like you are ready.
