Hi there! We agree that someone’s actions show if they support others like LGBTQ+ people, but something like having a small item that has a pride flag on it can be one of those actions. For LGBTQ+ folks who may enter your home, like your daughter’s partner, it can signal that your house may be a safe space for them to be themselves or that you’re a supportive person to LGBTQ+ people.
Extended family can be challenging if they are not as open about acceptance or are not accepting at all, but something like this can also spark dialogue and may help those folks become more accepting. We can’t tell you if you should or shouldn’t do something in your own home, but we can help give another view on why your daughter might have been upset.
