Hey, I’m AHDM4U’S resident connection to the stars. I’m here to counsel you in times of need. This month’s question comes from Family Jewels.
boopie, girl I have a crisis in my hand. I’m a queer person of color that is not out to my extended family. I accidentally sent a string of sexts — nude selfies — to a family reunion group thread. My younger sister was on hand to neutralize the cellular debacle on my mother and father’s phones (I’m open with them but there are limits to familial closeness.) So far my aunts, uncles, second cousins and play cousins have all remained silent. How do you follow up a picture of your pierced clit to your entire family? The reunion is Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend so we have time to figure out how I can make this better.

But chances are
Now, a better person would tell you to inscribe a heartfelt note
