I have made a kinda simular thread but this is different.But has your coming out changed any1s perception of lgbt's,like stereotype's or homophobia in general.I have homophobic mates and was just wondering if any of you had changed any1s minds.

My parents were liberal Democrats until I came out to them. Now they aren't. Does that count?

Yes, a lot of my friends from uni got over their own prejudice and many now stand up for gays because of our mateship.

If family are forced to put up with you, then their views will probably change. Friends will probably just abandon you. Oh well, you're better off without them anyway.

My opinion of LGBT people tends to go down when I learn someone is gay.

It can. I came out to one of my (I thought) hugely homophobic friends who once said "Let's go fag bashing. I'll bring the baseball bats." He asked me a bunch of questions, but ultimately ended up being totally cool with it and he still invites me to sleep over at his house and whatnot.

I'm not really out to anyone I know, so I don't know personally. But this reminds me of the television film, based on a true story, Prayers for Bobby. Such a great film!

My flatmates being catholics, they used to think that being gay was a choice and all that. Not in a nasty way tho, just kind of assumed that was how it worked. I promptly put the record straight :english:

I guess my point is that I learned that a lot of people out there don't necessarily hate lgbt ppl or anything, they just don't really know much about us. So let's let them know ppl!
