It’s no secret that Gen Zers and Millennials are two of the most progressive generations when it comes to key social and political issues, like same-sex marriage and gender identity.
But there are still plenty of people from older generations who are just as open-minded and accepting. The truth is, grandmas these days are hipper and more woke than ever. (Thanks, in part, to their Gen Z and Millennial grandchildren.)
Scroll down for 30 amazing tweets written by LGBTQ people about their woke grandmas…
hey guys, my grandma called and let me know that if anyone is mean to me for being gay, she'll break their kneecaps. She is 81 and lives in Idaho, but she's also serious about this.

I think the highlight of my trip back home was hearing how my grandad and grandma were the only members of their age group to speak in defense of the lgbt church members. It fills my heart with absolute joy.

My grandma and grandpa from my moms side just pulled me to the side and said “mija we know you’re gay. We were waiting for you to come out but we figured you weren’t going to officially say it. We love you regardless” and I’m crying some of the happiest tears right now

Talking to my grandma about being OCD and she says this ???
“Ya know don’t take this the wrong way but.. I have some *lesbian* and *gay* friends who are like that. And I mean it’s like every single one, they’re just the neatest, cleanest people”
Idk whether to laugh or cry

Nana is renting out a room in her house and when the tenant came over for the first time, he told her he was scared to tell her he was gay because he’s gotten rejected so many times from housing situations like this. Lucky him, he found the Queer Ally Grandma of Moore County™?

My grandma asked me about lgbt related stuff today out of the blue and it was very wholesome to hear her support it although she didn't quite get some of it yet

I spoke to my grandma for the first time since she heard I was gay. She’s 86, Catholic, fiercely protective and we’ve always been very close. I was anxious but we spoke as if nothing had changed. Hung up and had a little cry – the first since coming out. Everyone knows now. ?? pic.twitter.com/aP8ZIi4uJn

Someone called my grandma trying to scam her by pretending to be me, claiming to be injured, needing money, etc… she told him he couldn’t be her grandson because his voice was too deep ? and then hung up!
Protecting my grandma with my gay ass voice ????
