I've got a lot of friends who's "coming out" went exactly the same way. Some sadly have never reconciled with there loved ones.
I won't even pretend to know how hard this can be for people. I will say this, many of my friends stayed strong and continued to fight for their families, and percavered.
Now their families are closer than ever before. Matt Bomer's story is a hard fought one, but with the happy ending. The ending I wish for all my friends in the LGBTQ community!
