He may be working through his own feelings and just isn’t ready — but you can help open the door. Be positive about LGBT whenever there is an opportunity. For example, praise the talent or actions of a celebrity, speak positively about news around LGBT rights, talk about LGBT friends or acquaintances in a positive way, push back against negative comments. Hearing these things from you may help him feel more safe to confide in you.
