A girl, Bre, (or I call her Awesome) shared that she came out to her grandma, and like Santana, her grandma did not accept her. She also told her that she never wanted to see her again. The whole group was really supportive of her, and proud about how well she is handling it, even though you could tell she was upset.
In my opinion, the best advice given was to just give her grandma time and know that things she may have grown up with and learned do not match with her reality. Our sponser also said that coming out is very personal, and it takes a lot for someone to get to that point, and a lot of the time they expect everyone to be at that point with them. It is sad to say that someone needs time to except the person they love for being honest about themselves. And this is no excuse for what Bre’s grandma or Santana’s grandma did. I am just sharing what was discussed, and what points I thought were thoughtful.
I love that Glee is tackling issues that many people can relate to. And I hope that people like Bre’s grandma and Santana’s grandma learn to accept love in every form. Maybe not for the world but at least for their granddaughters.
