Dear Abby: Homophobic brother changes tune when daughter comes out

Dear Abby: I am a gay man who has had a difficult, distant relationship with my only brother, “Bill.” He has made many nasty, homophobic remarks, and my partner, “Jon,” has been excluded from many family gatherings. Because Jon wasn’t welcomed I also did not attend those gatherings, and I endured further wrath because I didn’t.

Bill’s daughter has just announced that she is a lesbian. His reaction is mystifying. He has embraced her and her partner and has lovingly included them into the heart of the family.
