When I came out to my brother, we were on vacation and we had stepped out to take a smoke break. We were standing there talking and we were talking about that topic. Then he asked me straight forward if I was gay, so I told him right away that I was, and we talked for like 2 hours after that. Then the next day gay marriage was made legal and my cousins instantly made fun of me (they didn’t know but made jokes) and my brother yelled at them and made them stop. Ever since he and I have become so close, and he has even told me that he’s gay and is in a relationship! (M, 19, Gay)
