Remember there is power in community.  We are stronger together, families, parents, friends, gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, non-binary, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning and allies.  Sexuality and gender exists on a spectrum throughout the world regardless of ethnicity, class, religions, gender, socioeconomic condition, or education.  If someone comes out to you, here are a couple of things which you can say right away:  “I am honored you told me. You know I love you. We can learn more about that as we live.”
