Cameron Esposito Tackles Tough Questions About Going Home for the Holidays

"I’m gay and I have family members who voted for Trump. How do I not go insane?"

Stand-up comedian Cameron Esposito tackles viewers' toughest questions in her BuzzFeed video series "Ask a Lesbian." Her latest video asked LGBT viewers to submit questions about going home for the holidays.

One viewer wanted to know if her family was accepting of having her wife visit for the holidays, to which Esposito answered, "More like is my wife accepting of having my family visit for the holidays."

Another was concerned about dressing androgynously, or "obviously gay," in front of conservative Catholic parents. "I don’t know," said Esposito. "I think dressing obviously gay kind of rules."[iframe https://giphy.com/embed/bQN0oi6W0tXbi allowfullscreen="" class=^{{"giphy-embed"}}^ frameborder="0" height="421" width="750"]A transgender viewer asked how to avoid awkward questions about their body without bringing down the mood, and a lesbian viewer asked how to avoid the dreaded "Do you have a boyfriend?" question, to which Esposito suggested distracting family members. "Bring up a different topic. Something like…Obamacare. Let them debate."[iframe https://giphy.com/embed/OqGuMGPK5FAe4 allowfullscreen="" class=^{{"giphy-embed"}}^ frameborder="0" height="421" width="750"]As expected, the election results were also on LGBT viewers’ minds. One viewer asked, "I’m gay and I have family members who voted for Trump. How do I not go insane?" Cameron Esposito’s face is all of us after hearing that question.[iframe https://giphy.com/embed/mAQzk7gn1RrTW allowfullscreen="" class=^{{"giphy-embed"}}^ frameborder="0" height="421" width="750"]If you’re anticipating a stressful holiday this year, you’ll definitely want to watch the full video below.
