There could be two directions of responses, though. Best-case is people thinking, "Gee, my child/sibling/friend/co-worker/pastor is a pretty decent person, so if ze is gay, then maybe being gay isn't so bad." Worst-case is "I guess I was wrong about this person, if ze is gay, then I should never have loved, cared about, relied on this person."
Absolutely. And I've certainly been subject to the latter. But my point is that, consistently over a period of at least 50 years, polls show that more people go the best-case way.
