Based on comments from the last page, it seems most of you have figured it to be the case that Rain hasn’t been open with her siblings before her friends did (or at least her brother; it’s already long been confirmed that her sister doesn’t know). So despite that being something of a big reveal at the end of this page for her friends, it’s not actually terribly surprising to [most of] the readers. The more revealing information for you, the readers, is actually in the middle of the page.
Apparently, Rain doesn’t talk much about herself to anyone. But why? Could it be a fear of opening up? Does she dislike her family? Did this topic just NEVER come up in conversation in the past four months?

Was going to happen sooner or later. It took me a long time to tell my family though so I understand.
Honestly, kinda expecting Aiken's girlfriend/fiancée to have come out as trans or something. And then he makes some offensive remark or something, and Rain/Ryan slaps him...
This comic is so awesome :) :)
Oh, and the :O faces in the last panel... Perfect! :D
And Gavin's never met either of the twins? Either they'd moved out already, or there was something up there.
(sorry, lots of words!)
...and also the only time she ever said anything resembling coming out to them, she got laughed at? I mean ok, they were kids, but could you blame her for being apprehensive?
Haven't told my family either. To be fair, only about 5 of my friends know, as of the past year, and I have no idea what my family would think. Still, I understand. I don't actually think my sisters would care, I just have no idea how I would explain it to them. My mother might be a bit harder to make understand, but I'm fairly sure my aunt figured it out long ago. Before I did, actually. It's just, how the heck does one start such a conversation?
Oh. Maybe Rain can give me pointers?
