Queer Person Shares Text Messages That Show How Their Relatives’ Opinion About Them Changed Over The Years

Having your family and loved ones accept you for who you really are is fundamental to living a happy life. We’re social animals, after all, and community support is incredibly important. On the flip side, rejection and being shunned, according to some scientists, can lead to long-term pain and increased sadness, as well as anger.

Queer, trans, and non-binary model ‘Rain Dove’ Dubilewski, from Brooklyn, went viral after they shared the text messages they exchanged with their relatives over more than a decade. The messages show how their loved ones’ reactions to them being different changed massively since 2008. It’s heartwarming.

Rain Dove’s Instagram post got nearly 21k likes since being posted on December 10 and sparked some hope that love will, eventually, overcome and conquer everything. And that family support will come out on top.

The story is positive not just for the LGBTQ community, but for everyone who’s ever had fundamental disagreements and door-slamming fights with their loved ones. No matter how much you think your relationship with your mom, dad, siblings, or other family members might be wrecked, there’s always a way to make it work. Now those are the warm and fuzzy feelings that you want during the winter holidays.

Of course, it’s naive to think that everyone will suddenly be on your side. As Rain Dove explains, not everyone has come around, but those that have reforged the bonds that were broken between them into something stronger. “Time may not always change everything, but often love will. Respect Your boundaries but be love. It will win.”

Rain Dove works in the fashion and film industries, and is an LGBTQ activist, according to their Instagram profile. They also believe in not using labels and that there are no limits. You can Bored Panda’s earlier post about Rain Dove right here.
