Awkward Family Zoom Call: A Lesson in Coming Out 🌈

So, our protagonist's cousin made a big announcement during a family Zoom call, coming out as gay. The family was super supportive, but things got awkward when it became clear that the cousin wasn't the only gay family member. 😬 Our protagonist had come out in a more low-key way, and the cousin felt like her thunder was stolen. While our protagonist initially felt annoyed, they started to wonder if they should have been more open about their sexuality. In the end, they decided to let the cousin cool off and try to reach out later. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔💬
