Answer: Some family and friends do have a hard time accepting that someone they love is gay or bisexual. However, there are many times where they are extremely supportive. Each person’s situation and surroundings are different and there is no definite way to tell how well your family will accept your sexuality. Just be strong and remember to come out to family and friends at your own pace. You can’t choose your family, but if your friends do not accept you for who you are, then they don’t need to be in your live anyway. You are in complete control, don’t let fear hold you back.
