Hey there @Yogurt!39

Thanks for asking us about this. I'm wondering, have they ever said or done anything that might reflect how they feel about the LGBTQ+ community, like opinions on gay marriage for example?

They once said something about not approving my friends parents. (They are a lesbian couple)

Hey,

Thanks for telling me that. Can I ask, what did they say? I think it's important to remember that so many people change the way they think and feel towards the community over time because of new experiences and educating themselves. Also, having a child come out as LGBTQ+ helps loads of parents to become more accepting, as the love they have for their child is so powerful in helping them to become more open minded. What do you think?

They mainly said that they did not approve of them. They try not to talk about the LGBTQ+ community much.

Hey there,

Ah, okay. I'm wondering, what do you think they need to change their opinions and become more open minded? For some people, sadly, their parents don't react well at first, but as time passes, they often become much more open minded, and having their child come out is a real learning curve. The instinctive and deep bond between a parent and child is such a strong force, and it can help to transform even the most rigid of minds. What are your thoughts on this?

I probably would have to to  talk to them a lot about it and give them some information  on the LGBTQ+ community. They most likely do not know much about what it really means.

Hey there,

Yeah, I think that information is really important, as well as having conversations. I also think that a good way of educating them is to just give them the experience of being with LGBTQ+ like yourself, and this will happen when you come out. People learn so much from being surrounded by people that are different to them, and it really helps them become more open and accepting. What do you think?
