Kudos for GLAAD's "Awkward Thanksgiving" campaign
GLAAD is right: we need to have those difficult conversations with people who know us but normally don't talk about gay-related issues. This is an important way to change society. Check out the campaign.
I know because I created a totally awkward Christmas dinner last year when I formally outed myself and my brother to my parents friends of 50 years. While there were a few heated moments, the conversation was a success and has helped my parents' relationship with this couple.
