Beautiful Twitter Thread Shows How You Can Support Your LGBTQ Friend Or Relative

Our society as a whole is progressing, with countries becoming more acceptable of the LGBTQ community and striking down laws that hurt them. However, people who belong to a generation where being straight was the only norm or are brought up with heterosexual principles, are struggling to understand, let alone accept these changes.

And since we live in such a reactionary world, we don’t even stop to think about the fact that the other person isn’t probably trying to be offensive. Instead, they’re starting from scratch and restructuring their mindset. Thankfully musician Jack Remmington understood that and gave notes for every straight person out there on how to approach their LGBTQ friend or relative.

Jack Remmington shared an incident where he was approached by a man. And while he thought that the conversation was going to go downhill, it went on a completely different direction.

So, without any hesitation, Jack told him about how to address his gay son. And, in my opinion, everyone should note down these instructions.

Netizens appreciated this ray of positivity that Remmington had shone upon the internet and for giving the world some much needed info regarding the LGBTQ community.

The former CJI Dipak Misra had said while striking down Section 377 that “I am what I am. So take me as I am. No one can escape from their individuality. Sustenance of identity is the essence of existence.” And that’s exactly the words that we should live by if we want our future to be more diverse and welcoming.
