Thanksgiving can be a time of peace, abundance, and warm feelings -- or it can mean being trapped at a table while your Uncle Lucky catches you up on Duck Dynasty and talks about how great America is going to be once coal takes off again. For LGBT people, many of whom come from families with different sets of values from their own, the holidays can often be a nightmare. Fortunately, our favorite LGBT comedians and writers have tweeted out the different strategies they've employed for dealing with with family this year.
1. Avoid them altogether.
2. Leave town.
3. Use all the tools at your disposal.
4. Spend the day with the family you've created.
5. Spend the day with your fur family.
6. Try a paradigm shift.
7. Trust no one.
\u201cThis year, remember the lesson of the first Thanksgiving: be wary of the people you're eating with, they want to take EVERYTHING from you.\u201d
