When Kay decided to tell her 15-year-old sister she was gay she expected to receive support, but she got a whole lot more.
“It was very spur-of-the-moment,” Kay told BuzzFeed News about coming out. “But I felt like it was time.”
Kay told her sister the news via text message.
“I love you no matter what,” her sister Sam replied. "...I guess I can tell you now that I’m bisexual too."

“At first I was shocked, and I almost thought she was joking around to make me feel more comfortable,” Kay said, “but then I realized she wasn’t one to joke around.”
Kay tweeted their screenshotted conversation out and it immediately began to resonate with people around the world.
@comingdownkay I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

The good news later continued when Kay came out to her parents who apparently already knew.
