A pretty exciting way to get the news.

For most LGBT teens, coming out of the closet will be one of the most difficult parts of their lives. Opening up about your sexuality to family, friends, and the public at large can put you at risk for scorn and ridicule. But 16-year-old Gina from California decided to take a lighthearted approach to her telling her “super supportive” family she was lesbian. “I am not the type of person to have a deep, sit-down conversation, so I wanted to tell them in a lighthearted and fun way,” she said. So, she went to the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland.

For her dramatic reveal, she got in the back seat of a log on Disneyland’s Splash Mountain with a rainbow-colored sign that read “I’m Gay.” “I love funny ride photos so I figured I could make the sign just in case I decided to go for it, and I did,” she told Buzzfeed News. When she reached to top of the ride’s climax, a 52-foot drop, she held the sign up proudly, while the camera snapped a photo of her descending the mountain. Since she posted her photo on Twitter yesterday, Gina’s tweet has been retweeted 4600 times and attracted 8200 favorites. “People have responded saying I’ve inspired them to do the same thing, which I think is the coolest part of it all,” she said.

Here are some of the positive responses she’s received for her tweet.

And some people wanted to know why the other girls in the flume looked so bummed out.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
