Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.
Also, shout out to all LGBTQ people (like myself) who may be out but *still* have to return to unsafe family environments this winter, and have to deal with outright disrespect, torment, or pressure to “change”.
Be safe. Protect yourself emotionally and, if necessary, physically. Above all, remember you are not alone.
