When my sister told me that she's gay , I felt like someone had punched me in the gut, and I immediately started crying. It wasn't because I was anxious about the hate or judgment she might have to endure now that she was out. It wasn't because we had conservative or extremely religious people in our family who wouldn't approve — in fact, everyone we know and surround ourselves with is very liberal. It wasn't even because of the way she told me — in a long, nervous text message where she apologized for telling our parents and her best friend before she told me. It was because, when she told me, I immediately backtracked through Rachel's life, realizing that her struggles with anxiety and depression must have been, in part, due to the fact that she had been hiding who she really was. I immediately remembered the year Rachel slowly started to disconnect from the world.
I think my sister's a lesbian? Help!?

Soon after, Anderson was offered the role of a lifetime. Audiences were even more curious about the pairing than they might have been about either alone. The ensuing years saw Anderson focus on family, particularly when daughter Diedre Hoffman from her first marriage was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a cause she speaks on whenever possible to raise awareness and funding for a cure. Of course, the actress continues to receive scripts and offers to work. However, Anderson — choosey even at the height of her career — remains selective about which she considers. It makes her return to acting with the January 22 launch of My Sister Is So Gay, a six-episode webisodic series, all the more note-worthy.
Miss California's Sister 'Surprised' by 'Gay Activist' Title
Five years ago, I asked my older sister Kelly if she was gay and she said yes. When you have an LGBT Q sibling, you watch a lot of emotions unfold — pain, anger, resentment, fear, love, confusion, acceptance, doubt, triumph. But most of all, you witness someone daring to go through hell to be who they are.
Anderson stars as Frances the boozy and inappropriately sexy mother of two middle age children in this new LGBT themed series. It just seems she's way more upset about Katherine cheating on her than her husband and it's not adding up for Seth especially when Amanda acts all loopy around his lesbian co-worker Becca played by Debra Wilson. The series focuses on whether Seth's right-winger, homophobic sister is gay as Amanda tries to figure out why Seth's way younger and very handsome boyfriend played by Tilky Jones is interested in Seth and questions why he seems to have too many secrets or perhaps he's married. Needless to say I've had my hysterical moments over the election and I have a granddaughter who's a junior at UCLA and we have had many spirited discussions about our feelings. I think after you get over being hysterical, but I don't know if you do, that you try and move forward the best you can and hope that we do not slip backwards.
