Do you have friends who are LGBTQ+?
Yes, we have quite a few. Sometimes it’s difficult. My friend is transgender and at first, not in a mean sense, it was a bit odd calling them by their name as they came out. I kept accidentally calling them by their given name. But I’ve come to see now, I shouldn’t have done that (not on purpose of course).
I do have a lot of transgender and gay friends. Sometimes I do talk to them about stuff like this, because I want to learn more. I want to make sure I understand it.
I do think sometimes whenever somebody first changes, it’s a bit hard to not call them by what their name used to be, or call them he instead of she, or she instead of he, but I think once you’ve been calling them that for a week it’s fine.
