Cool story...

My 18 year old niece Anna has a ton of childhood friends from even as far back as preschool she's still friends with today. Her childhood best friend is her roommate next year when she goes to college.

Anyway, today Anna, two of girl friends and two guy friends all hung out together. They were in a safe area in Minneapolis. Her one guy friend is named Jake. Anna and Jake have been friends since preschool. Anna texted me a few pictures from today. They were playing around on a lake... pond hockey, this is Minnesota after all.

So she was sending pictures and I jokingly told her Jake is cute as ever and wondered why she never got together romantically with her childhood friend. She paused then tells me that Jake is gay. I am like... What? When?!?!?!

She said six months ago he told his close friends and family. He was the captain of the Varsity boys soccer team, is very popular, extremely well liked. The good news is he's probably even more well liked now because no one cares and it's a wonderful thing.

My dad joked now that he knows Jake is gay he approves of Anna and Jake going everywhere together.

Anyway, I thought this story is so awesome. I know Minnesota is a very liberal state (thankfully) but it's just so great how sexuality doesn't matter.

It really is.

I even asked Anna if it was shocking or how she reacted. She said she wasn’t shocked yet didn’t suspect either. She said everyone reacted naturally and then they moved on, lol.

My dad’s joke made Anna laugh because my dad’s always making comments (teasing but with a tad of seriousness lol) about her not being out too late and never being alone with guys.

Anna’s like so finally Grandpa lightens up.

That's great that everyone is so accepting of Anna's friend's sexuality and that your father even made a joke about it.

My oldest friend waited until 3 years ago to come out to me and I wasn't surprised at all and it doesn't affect our friendship at all. I asked him why he waited so long to tell me and he said he was scared, but I told him it never would have mattered to me.

It is great.

That's really wonderful how you handled things with your friend. I bet you made him so happy.
