    So apparently my first cousin once removed is gay. I have no idea what he looks like and I have never met him.

    My best friend is a trans boy and my sister is questioning but is probably a lesbian. I have a cousin once removed who's gay and married.

    No family members (at least not that I'm aware). I do have two close friends who are gay and a few others who aren't that close but I still talk sometimes.

    My sister is a lesbian, my uncle is gay, one of my closest friends is a "pansexual" male (but I still call him my gay best friend), and two of my female friends are bisexual.

    No LGBT family. I have a close friend (girl) that is bi and 2 gay guys who I'm friends with. Because of the way I came out, it made a lot of people take notice even if they didn't like it. So here's to hoping I've paved the way for other people :slight_smile:!!

    My younger brother is gay, although I haven't spoke to him in years.

    I have 2 gay friends who live elsewhere. 1 already knows about me.

    My cousin. She doesn't like labels, but she likes girls and guys with some preference towards girls. It was actually very funny when I found out, because I hadn't seen her in a while until, at the begining of this year, she spend a week at my place, and she seemed way more mature than the last time I had seen her (I actually didn't like her all that much before that week), so while watching a TV series together (sense 8) she stared going on and on about how much she hated close minded people, so I thought "Ok, let's see how this goes" and said something like "Hey, I like girls", she responded something like "Really? That's so cute" I was ready for some stupid inmature response after that, but suddenly she said "Me too!" and told me about her girlfriend xDD it was great

    Tons of friends too! Three gay males, one asexual girl, one asexual guy, one demisexual girl (she's actually my brother's girlfriend), one agender (I actually have a crush on them), one gender fluid (mostly male) bisexual (he has a preference for men) and three bi girls. Then there's this lesbian classmate, but we are not really friends.

    It's really nice to know so many LGBTQ+ people, it makes me feel kinda safe (? anyways it's hard to talk to most of them about these topics because they get kinda nervous, but my genderfluid friend (Fabián) is always willing to talk, so we often have some fun discussing various things, other times we cry or complain together (?

    My cousin is gay. He lives in another country and I barely see him, I don't really know him too well. But it was a pretty emotional moment for me when I saw on facebook that he was gay (he doesn't know I am, but it still feels like some kind of a connection considering I'm really not close to him at all)

    My best friend is bi, and my other best friend is pan.

    Other than that, I have a few other LGBT friends.

    As far as family goes, well, my sister on the other side of the country whom I have never met might have said she has dated women in the past. But she is about to marry a man. So maybe she's bi?
    All the rest of my family appears to be straight.

    Everybody in my family is conservative. Even if someone wasn't cis or straight they probably wouldn't come out. It's sad and I don't plan on being in contact with my extended family when I get out of the house.

    I have a lesbian aunt that's been open and proud my whole life. I have a gay uncle that came out about 15 years ago, and I still remember that day pretty clearly.

    Don't know about any cousins or other relatives that are LGBT as I have a HUGE extended family.

    Noone in my family that I know of but then I'm not close with them anyway. I have several friends and acquaintances though who identify as either gay or bi.
