However, I have known many gay people in my lifetime who didn’t have much contact with siblings and they did distance themselves. In every single case, they were much older than I am. I just keep wondering, though, if things are changing for younger people. But I really don’t know.
“The dominant explanation for this is that these individuals receive lower levels of social support from their family and the broader community. This is because non-heterosexuality remains a stigmatised and not fully accepted social status.”
