We’d all like to think that we’d instinctively know what to say or do if a family member shared something important with us, but it’s not always the case. Sometimes we might need advice from a third party.
It’s not very often, though, that the third party would be a gay bar!
This story is pretty heartwarming – a bartender at a mostly gay bar in Mississippi took a call from a woman who’s son had just come out to her, and she didn’t want to say the wrong thing, so she called the bar for some advice.
Maybe not the most conventional approach, but thoughtful nonetheless.
Good on that Mom!
Thanks, as always, for reading!
