    How did you come out?

    Post by TravM on Tue Jun 22, 2010 1:29 am

    Did you come out to your parents? Did you come out to people at school? What exactly happened? I, myself, have never come out to anyone. I'm still contemplating on who to tell.

    If and when I tell my mom, she'll most likely be upset. I'm not sure about her general opinion of gays, but I'm sure she's somewhat prejudice. She may get over it in a year. I'm not sure how my stepdad would take it. He's made jokes about gays before. He'll more than likely not be so open-minded about it. And that sucks because we've been actually hanging out and talking more.

    If and when I tell my real dad, that relationship is kaput. I'm prepared for it, and I guess I'll try and make the most out of the remaining years we have. My sister has stuck up for her gay friends before, even though she claims to be a huge Christian, so I'm guessing she'll be okay with it. My stepdad's daughters have called me gay before (in an insulting joke kind of way). I doubt they'll be surprised and I doubt they'll talk to me casually again. They'll probably talk about me behind my back and make jokes, like they usually do. My mom's family will most likely have a fit and I'll lose my close relationship with my cousin, who I always used looked up to. He told me he'd "fucking punch me" if I was gay. He said it in a joking manner, but he would most likely do this. I'm prepared for whatever happens.

    The only person I'm out to is my dad. I came out to him while we were sharing a room on holiday last year. He was cool with it, actually he'd guess it already.

    My mother found out a more awkward and most definitely not that way I had originally intended to at all. Well we're not exactly supposed to share stories, but she had walked in on my ex and I rounding second base, (making out) and she stared turned around, started laughing and saying "I KNEW IT!"

    I guess the most significant comming out for me was to my mum. We went for a walk, just after I had come back from the pride parade. She said to me
    "You know, if you were gay, I wouldn't care. I just don't know how your dad would take it"
    to which I replied
    "That's why I haven't told him yet"

    That was my big moment. My mum pretty much told everyone after that, including my dad.

    Meh. Wouldn't be that shameful to me, imo. That's certainly not how I would want to come out, but it wouldn't be so bad. xD

    Well you could be straight on the outside and gay/bi or whatever on the inside it doesn't matter. Whatever you find out that you truly are, just be proud of it. Never be ashamed.

    No. This doesn't always have to be the case.
