National Coming Out Day happened last Wednesday, and so what else to talk about on Thursday but the many (many, many, many!) questions related to coming out! We talked about the initial stages, dealing with family who ignores your identity completely, how to handle people who don't use correct pronouns, and what to do when your mom doesn't want you to come out because it will make her sister judge her parenting (Spoiler: I yell a lot), among other things!
Join me this Thursday for BREAK UPS!
