How would you act if someone you knew, either friend or family member, came out to you as being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered?

For my part, I’d be supportive to any friend or family member who trusted me with that information. What kind of person would I be if I were to turn my back on someone who wanted, needed, me to understand who they are, as a person? Not a very good one, I’d imagine.
If my son or daughter came to me and told me this, I’d fear for their safety, but I wouldn’t try to stop them or change their minds. GLBT folks were born GLBT and nothing anyone can do, including recuperative therapy (so-called ex-gay counseling) or prayer, or wishful thinking is going to change that.
I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
