  • Remember that in the same way that it took you time to sort things out in your head the listener also needs time.

  • Deciding that 'being true to yourself' is more important to you than what others think is a brave act - but the listener may not be as brave as you. They may have guessed about your sexuality and decided to keep quiet.

  • If the listener rejects your news it is not necessarily a rejection of you but a fear of rejection by society.

  • Sometimes the fear of a bad reaction to your Coming Out can be much worse than the reaction you do get.

  • Have support nearby for you and the listener to talk to, either locally or on the end of a phone.
