If your loved one doesn’t identify as simply gay or lesbian, don’t push them to do so or try to put them in a box for your own convenience. There is a huge spectrum of sexualities among LGBTQ people, and many more labels than just gay, lesbian, bisexual and queer. If a loved one comes to you and tells you that they identify as something different now, don’t question it. It may not even be that they’re “still figuring it out”; sexuality can be fluid too.
