Dear Laca,

On the subject of coming out...

I can’t imagine how you feel. Scared, nervous. Hopefully neither because you feel so confident that I love you unconditionally.

If you’re reading this because you’ve been holding off on telling us you’re gay or anything other than hetero, I want you to know

That I FUCKING LOVE YOU. And you have no reason to be nervous or terrified. Because - like - what does it matter to me? It literally makes no difference to my life or our relationship at all. I’m going to hate anyone you bring home no matter who they are because they’ll never be good enough for you and honestly I’d rather you focus on your dreams than be swept up by romance ;) I’m only joking! What good is life without romance!

If these words help, but not enough, your god mother is a great person to talk to. She can tell you all about our Q days in high school and college.

❤ your mother
