Family's reaction to coming out
It was incredibly brave of Dutee Chand, a female sprinter, no matter what her immediate reason to come out or the familial backlash.
Sonam Kapoor acted in a lesbian plot and the film actually got a commercial release. Ayushman Khurana too shall act in a similar film, we hear.
Wish these things happened ten years sooner. Acceptance from the family or the lack of it can make life long, or just make it feel long.
Those who came out, what were your family reactions like? I lost my home after coming out. We exist in a social construct, but the relation is no longer the same.

It is completely an individual decision to come out or not. Not just how to come out, one should also think of how much to come out.
I have a two pence advice for those exploring their sexuality and wanting to 'become' bisexual so they can get married. Sexual attraction is a fairly permanent romantic, emotional and sexual attraction to someone. You don't need to have *** with someone to figure whether you are attracted to them or not. It is in your mind. If you fantasise having *** with someone, spending time with someone, if you have sexual dreams involving someone then you know what gender you are attracted to. No medical or psychological test can determine that for you. Remember success or failure in one sexual encounter with a stranger is no way an indicator of your sexual orientation. You can still be attracted to someone and not be able to get aroused for many reasons. You may show sexual arousal (*** in case of men) without having any attraction to that someone. Explore for yourself. You will figure if you are open to yourself.

Thanks exotic and coolbisu..made me feel my two cents are worth more than that :)
Here is one more that u can decipher...i fancied trignometry as long as it was in the books...A triangle with a perpendicular never takes precedence over cylinder for me...

@ Sasmathu "That simply doesn't happen in Indian society."
If it was just for you, "Indian society" would stay *** in the medieval times. Your concept of "Indian society" is total bullshit. Indian society has always changed throughout times, LIKE ANY OTHER SOCIETY, and hopefully for the best. And yes, individual coming outs will do as much for society change than the decriminalisation of homosexuality by the Supreme Court. People will think at a relational level, they will realize that gays are not just "others", they are their own sons and daughters, even parents, sometimes, friends, cousins, colleagues....
Yes, coming out requires a bit of courage. But no society change has ever been done without a bit of courage. Never forget that the LGBT revolution in the world started on Christopher Street, by a few trans bashing some cops in a rowdy bar of New York.... These people played with their life.

@sissypranita - I think your name says it all if you are sissy then you have to be a bit effeminate which your sis would have observed so she probably has a clue about your orientation. However hats off to her for bringing it up Casually and she even normalised it. There is definitely a change in the way the society percieves alternative sexual preferences
