I hated myself for so long about being gay, then I accepted it, and went throught the battle of should I tell my parents or not.
My father was, as I saw him, a complete homophobe, and he still is, and my mother was just an accepting person as most mothers are.
When I told my parents, my father said I dont know wether to kiss you or hug you or shake your hand. It was his way of making light of an uncomfortable situation, my mum cried.
I must admit that christmas eve is not the best time to reaveal your sexuality to your parents, but when it needs to be said it will come out.
Its a couple of years on, and its as if nothing was ever said, they know I am gay and love me. But I feel as though I am still in the closet as we never discuss things.
Finding an equal playing field is never easy.
All I can really say is, you will know when to come out, it will never feel right, but there will be a driving force to just say "I AM GAY" and all will work out sooner, or later, one way or another.
Its only life, and its yours. Reach out and experience it as you are.
