Would it be a bad idea to come out in a public place if I'm not sure how someone would react?

It seems like a very reasonable safety measure. I don’t see why it would be rude to protect yourself. Public spaces and public eyes force people to behave appropriately, that’s a good thing.
While you are thinking about how this will affect them, remember that this is about YOU 😊 make yourself comfortable first! They come second.
You only need to manage your own feelings. Their feelings are on them. If you’d feel most comfortable saying it in public go for it!
