She faced many challenges ever since.

However, that wasn’t the only issue. Kat admitted the homophobia she received when she came out. She likened her experience to getting hit by a bus. Her experience wasn’t the same as Max’s. Needless to say, it’s been rough for the young teen.

“From what I saw from the outside of my older sister’s coming out story, everyone was supportive. Her friends were supportive,” Kat Dubrow said in a confessional alongside her mom, as quoted by People. “But when I came out, I was dealing with a lot of homophobia. I had issues with people at school who were saying the f-slur around me and who were just not very supportive of the LGBTQ+ community.”

The Bravo star admitted that hearing Kat Dubrow’s story broke her heart. In another scene, the two talked about the decor in her room while gardening. Kat Dubrow considered taking her gay pride flag down after she received backlash about her coming out online.

“I got a comment the other day on TikTok,” Kat Dubrow explained. “I have the rainbow flag in my bio and I got a comment that said, ’14 and already gay. WTF.’ And then I got really embarrassed. I don’t know, it kind of made me think I should take it down and then get a smaller one in the corner of my room.”
