I see myself as open-minded and accepting. However, i often wonder what my reaction would be if a relative of mine or friend comes out to me? Obviously I won't out them or anything like that but that possibility disturbs me because I'm in a country where you go to jail if caught. What would i say? What sort of advice would they be looking for from me? Any tips?

What do you mean comes out? You mean, come out being Gay?

I'd be there for them but make them aware (even though they probably are) of the consequences.

I also do not see any problem in this. In any case, if this somehow confuses you, then try to understand and accept the position of a person dear to you. On the other hand, they also have the right to self-determination. They can meet, live, communicate. Make your choice. The future partner can be found remotely via the Internet https://meetville.com/catalog/us/cg-11-lgbt/6716/gay . Now dating for gays and not only are not a problem. Understand your relative.

Well, is someone from your family or one of your friends comes out and confesses that he is gay to you then you must know that he just needs you to accept him for what he is. The fact that he has chosen to reveal his secret to you reveals that he trusts you a lot. All he needs is your emotional support and acceptance. Once you accept him for his sexuality then he won't bother you much with his expectations. However, you will need to support him in any kind of problems he may face due to his sexuality as it will be your moral duty toward your friend.

Well I can definitely see the worry you have about the situation, seeing how some places aren't very accepting at all, but if you have a family member in that situation, then they're going to need some help or even comfort knowing that someone has their back. It can definitely be risky, but as long as they're aware of the consequences, having your family support you can be very important.

I really hope you will back up your relative if this will be the case. If you are worrying that your relative is gay in a country with strict laws, you can just imagine how though this is for this family member. I guess he needs all the personal support he can get. Even if he wants to keep it as a secret or not.
